Bouncing BloodPressure

I am a 59yr old woman with HCV caused cirrhosis. About 50% of the time my doctor takes my blood pressure it is normal (120/70 or 80) and the other times it's high (160/105) or more. Had heart tested a couple of years ago and it was fine. Pre-cirrhosis it was always low. Ideas?

Hi.. Occasional rise in BP is not termed hypertension.. They could occur due to multiple of psychological factors such as stress, anxiety and related to the mood of the person and so on. Hence it may not be related to the cirrhosis... If the BP is persistently high then contact your doctor..
