I am a 73 year old woman and I have episodes of high blood pressure from time to time and have had this problem since the age of 28. When I was 28 I was prescribed Inderal 10 migm 5 times a day and I still take this medication but for several years I have only taken 10 mgm at bedtime. I usually increase the dosage if my BP starts acting up. These episodes only last a few days and are usually related to stress. I know that my salt intake was very high over the holidays . During normal times my BP is 130/80. A few years ago my doctor put me on ritalin and it made me feel spaced out so I went to a Naturopath and took angiolaxin starting with 5 tabs twice a day and over a course of months we gradually decreased the dosage until I no longer used it. Sometimes I tend to take on too many commitments and everybody says slow down but it is not in my nature to do that. When I feel an episode of out of control BP , I become very tired, almost exhausted and have a slight headache. To give you an example of my BP readings for the past 10 days -- Dec 22, 2013 10:45 a.m. 178/94 Pulse 68 Dec 24, 2013 9 p.m. 201/94 P 68 Dec 27,2013 10:30 a.m. 139/78 P73 Dec 30, 2013 9:40 a.m. 161/90 P 92 Dec 31, 2013 5 p.m. 181/95 P72 Jan 1, 2014 8:30 a.m. 150/87 P63 Jan 2, 2014 8:30 a.m. 193/98 P65 Restarted Angiolaxin 5 tabs BID Jan 3 , 2014 4 a.m. 166/94 P61 Stayed in bed, resting Jan 4, 2014 9 a.m. 163/98 P 64 Jan 5, 2014 12Noon 149/99 P 90 Couldn t concentrate, tired, slight headache. Jan 6, 2014 9 a.m. 156/94 P 73 Jan 6, 2014 10 a.m. 195/100 P 73 Took 2 tylenol for headache. Spent time reviewing paperwork Took the dog for 2 short walks. Jan 6, 2014 2 p.m. 146/89 P 82 Took a nap for 1 hour, then walked the dog Jan 6, 2014 5 p.m. 136/91 P 89 It feels like the episode is over now even though it lasted a lot longer. When my blood pressure gets so high should I get out and take walks or should I just rest? I am still on the Angiolaxin and it does bring the BP down after a few days but I will listen to your suggestions

I have been extremely fatigued the past two days, it seems I cannot stop sleeping. I went to CVS and checked my blood pressure which was 114 over 43, I am 36 years old and female. I weigh 136 and am 5 7 tall with no history of any health problems at all. Is this normal blood pressure? Can this be part of my fatigue. Thanks for any help.

In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.

I have a rash in my groin and my body is always itchy. For about 2 years I had rashes on both my feet. It seems to have cleared now but I still have to apply dipresone everyday. I take medication for high blood pressure - Micardi Plus, Zanidip and Spiractin. Are any of these causing my rash problems?

My husaband is 65 years old nad he told me that last night he experienced a sudden waive of dizziness, enough that he actually fell down. He has high blood pressure and on meds, but never diagnosed with anything else. He is currently working out of town and lives alone. I am very concerned. What could that be?

I feel kind of silly asking this, but my heart rate (resting) has been elevated all day -- ranging from 107 early am, up and down from 130 - 180 most of the day. I've been having episodes like this for several months, but not this bad or long lasting. I guess I'm just not sure what to do. Bp avgs 120/78 - 130/88.
