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 had been taking meds for HPB but in the last few weeks, my BP has been running much lower than normal, in the range of 100/56. I stopped taking my meds for HBP and it has remained low. Should I contact my doctor or is it ok to wait until my next appt. next month?

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?

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.
