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

Blood Pressure is normal throughout the day except in the morning. Why it is like this?

Morning High Blood Pressure… How can I tell I have it? What can I do about it? Causes Stroke??
When I wake up every single morning, my heart starts to thump as if I’m running… Does that indicate High Morning Blood Pressure? Should I be worried? The last time I went to see a doctor my blood pressure was 120/70I THINK it is 70bt I KNOW the12 is correct.&that was while I was freaking out because I get anxiety when I go to the doctor. They say on the radio that most strokes are caused by Morning High Blood Pressure. My heart thumps really“Loud”&really Fast in the morning…Sometimes I feel I need to stay there for a min& try2slow it down because it concerns me. I don’t’ have one of those blood pressure monitors& don’t have the cash for one but would the morning hard &fast thumping be a sign of high morning blood pressure? How exactly do u go about fixing a blood pressure issue that ONLY happens when I wake up?The rest of the time my blood pressure is normal2low…Med’s work ALLTHETIME,so how would you ‘target’ such a short period of time when things are ‘dangerous’?

I always take my blood pressure in the morning. I dint think you can feel when your blood pressure is high. Sounds like anxiety to me
