Your blood pressure may be up because quitting smoking can be a very stressful experience. Stress can raise your BP. However, I would make a visit to the doctor. Maybe he can give you something to help with the stress. Also might be good to just get it checked in case there is something else wrong. Congrats on be 8 days smoke free! That is really tough!

I am a 51 year old none smoking male and not over weight. I have an active job and until recently have always had healthily low bloood pressure. I had a pre- med (inguinal hernia) 3 days ago and had a Bp of 134/102 which seems very high. I have just returned from my Gp surgery having checked my Bp on the waiting room monitor and it read 134/90 which is, i believe, still high? Is this within normal parameters? It still seems to have shot up from its usual low to mid 70 s range. Regards, Paul
I have high blood pressure 3/5 times i take it. I m currently a student to become a RN, i do know this is high, but im currently taking Benazepril 20 mg once a day, i no longer smoke, im on a strict diet and, i do not consume alcohol, my BP is still 156/102 60+% of the time, I m wondering if there is anything else i could do at home to help lower my bp. I m 20 years old and personally don t think i should be having high BP. I am also anemic, can that have anything to do with it?
my wife has times during the day when her heart will suddenly speed up and she feels faint. her doctor told her she has low blood pressure, but when she has one glass of wine she gets a headache like she has hypertension. what do you think is wrong?
I am a 72 year old woman in good health with elevated BP in morning. Started Bystolic ( less than 2 mg at night) My BP was 113/68 with pulse of 62. Am I getting too low? My family doc says too low is a risk factor for stroke in older women. What say?
Hi, I am 46 y/o female (just turned 46), still active. My height is only 4'9" and weight 122 lb. But my BP and my pulse is high. Usually I don't go to see a doctor, only for my papsmear/mamo. This week I've had a cold and couldn't come to work. I went to see my doctor (after 2 years) and my BP was 150 (didn't tell me how much diastolic was). She just told me to come for another check up in 4 months. I called her next day and asked for some lab tests (cholesterol, creatinine, which I've had done 6 years ago). Why she didn't offer this to me during my visit? Anything else should I check? I decided to change my diet and checking my bp regularly at home. Interesting, that sistolic went down. The highest I've had 123 and lowest 103, but diasolic still high - 79-90. My pulse is 82-96. I think this numbers are telling that I have prehypertension. I work as a sonographer in a busy hospital. My work is also very stressfull. My father died suddenly from the heart attack at 67. My mother has HBP and taking meds. So, I am in high risk. What else can I check (tests) to examine my heart (coronary arteries)? I don't want to start meds.
Hello...my husband is 38 and takes medicine for high blood pressure. His mother gives him a diuretic to take and, if he runs out of his own medicine, will give him some of her blood pressure medicine. Right now he is in the hospital for kidney stones...can any of this cause that?
Dear Doctor, I'm a 36 year old mail, 5'11", 242 lbs. (down from 250 lbs.) with prehypertension . My blood pressure is variable but the vast majority of the time is in the prehypertensive range. Sometimes, in the mornings, it is at or below 120/80,...
