What can I do to make it remain low my BP ?

when i go to the doctor , my otherwise normal blood pressure spikes high. what can i do to lower it at the doc? i have 2 bp monitors at home and i check every hour. And both machines results come out normal. But whenever i go to the doctor s (any doctor), my bp goes sky high. I admit, I have always been scared of clinics, but i have tried my best to remain calm. now the doctors think i am lying. what can i do to make it remain low at the doctor s?

If your doctors think you are lying, either prove you're right or find new doctors. I recommend taking one of your home machines in to the doctor's office to compare readings side-by-side. This will help to validate your home readings. Another issue may be in how they are taking your BP there. You should be sitting in a chair, with your feet on the floor and having rested for a few minutes. Something lik nicotine or caffeine just before a measurement would also cause a BP spike, but given that you take your BP so regularly, I'm sure you're aware of that. Heck, it could just be driving!

My father has very low BP currently 106/51 and is due stent surgery on tuesday. Have discovered that stent placement can lead to low BP, will they continue with the procedure if his BP remains this low? If so what are the risks for him? He is 86 and cant have bypass surgery because of acute pancreatitis history.

My mother had emergency brain surgery to stop the bleeding as she suffered a massive stroke. Doctors are saying surgery was needed to stop the bleeding of the brain. She is not responsive, pressure goes up and down. Tracheotomy was suppose to take place today to make her more comfortable from the breathing tube but blood pressure is too low. What causes the pressure to remain low? is there danger? Please email me. Thank you for your response.

I have had high blood pressure since I was 14, and now im 18. I am not fat, I eat healthy for the most part. I do not smoke or drink at all or take any illegal drugs. I am on Lisinipril 20mg and hydrochlorithyzide 25mg. My doctors are baffled because they have checked my heart, my kydneys, and continious blood work. My blood pressure on a calm day is 150/95 they keep doubling my medicine, but i do not lose any points what could possibly be the secondary cause, and if it is hereditary why can the levels not go down. My second problem is I am suspected to have internal bleeding. Once a week I get these crippling feelings in my lower abdomin. I have to go to the bathroom immediately and the stool is almost pure liquid filled with dark red blood. After I go to the bathroom my pain is gone.
