I have hypertension (high BP) and I have been on BP medication for a long time. Just last week my BP med had to be increased almost double because my BP has become very elevated and will not level out. This is the first time that I have had this problem. What can I do to help decrease my BP? I take my BP med everyday, faithfully, so it s not because of that. I m just wondering what are some other ways to bring high BP down. Anyone having the same problem and getting it under control please tell me how you did it. Thank you!

Hi, I am reading this website because my mother s blood pressure is measuring 200/100. It changes all the times in a day. She measures around 150/100 to 200/100 (usually higher in the evenings). We have been to the Doctor last week. Mum was sent for a scanning test and ultra sound last week. Her heart side is good and everything came out good. But her blood pressure has not come down since.We are a little bit worry and will go back to the Doctor again tomorrow, beside the reading . my mother is feeling fine. Can she wait till tomorrow to see the Doctor? Thanks in advance.

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.
