I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Are fluctuating blood pressure levels a matter of concern?

My blood pressure can be slightly high in early morning, but if I work in the yard or the garden I get really tired and have to take rest breaks frequently. When I come in the house I feel as if I am dragging. My lowest reading was 87 over 41. Even doing little things like washing dishing or sweeping the floor it will drop to around 115 over 65. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Hi,

If it is creating the doubt for blood pressure disease then it has to be checked with physician if you go on measuring with your own so it will go on fluctuating every time you read it and it is happening due to over consciousness.

If you do not have any illness then it is advisable not to measure it like that only, if the blood pressure fluctuating in normal range so it may not cause in symptoms and it can not be low on its own.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My daughter has fibromyalgia and her blood pressure fluctuates between 122/84 and 155/105. She takes Lyrica and nortryptiline and I understand these may cause her blood pressure to rise. Should I be concerned? Is there anything she can do to keep it lower? Thanks.

Hi Doc. I am concerned about my sister in law s hypertension which fluctuates between 13/9 and 12/8.5 Sometimes it is 12 or 11/7. She is taking Mycardis 40 once a day, but is easily agitated and yells at home. It is very possible that she has anxiety as anything happening to people around her that she knows, she gets anxious. Here upper back and neck aches are recurring and last longer than usual. This is not got good as she has a baby to care for and has a full time stressful teaching job. I am concerned.
