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.

Hello, my name is Dianne. I have suffered from hypertension for over 6 years. Several medications did not work. My right kidney was removed in November of last year. My bp came down. I am now on only 200 mg of labatalol 2 times daily. I has been increasing. About two weeks ago I experienced and was treated for bronchitis with Z-pack then started Cipro three days ago. However, I am extremely out of breathe now and have muscle pain from my upper neck to my lower back. It feels as though I am bruised to the point I cant even wear a bra. I have tightness in my chest just to the left side. I also feel very tired and have been unable to work because of this and have gained 6 pounds in just a weeks time. Could this possibly be from my kidney. The last test showed 74% function of the remaining kidney. That was in January, It took two er visits with the chest pain for them to say it was bronchitis.
