What can I do during the day to lower BP ?

During the day I have HIGH blood pressure when active. Walking around ect.. High as in 140 over 105. During the night hours i am 110 over 70 SUPER LOW blood pressure. I went to a doctor who said he did not want to put me on anything due to the LOW pressure at night. He said the blood pressure pills would kill me.. is this a fact and if it is what can i do during the day to lower this.. Any help is great in this aspect..

A pressure of 110/70 is not low, it is normal. The doctor is right to hold off on medications for now, they might not kill you, but they could cause dizziness.

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.
