I am so frustrated. Ever since I gave after my first baby my blood pressure has been crazy. I have given birth 3 times and after each birth my blood pressure got worse and worse. My bp after my last birth topped 190/110! :eek:
I was on mostly on 40mg benicar or 40/5 azor with a HCTZ pill. It took weeks to come down and then I started getting sick, out of breath and dizzy. I went on and off this med over the past couple years because sometimes my BP would be ok without it.
In the past year I started getting random spikes of 180/110 out of the blue and feeling out of breath. My doctors have run stress test, thallium stress, stress echo, 3D echo, and a calcium score. All fine. Blood tests all fine. I also have random erratic high pulse between 98-120.
I am not on 10mg lisinopril with 12.5 hctz. I still get out of breath sometimes, my blod pressure in the morning is usually 103/78 but by noon or with any acitivity it jumps to 135/117 or 160/105. I am afraid to move up 20mg lisinopril because I think my BP will bottom out and become too low in the mornings. More often it's 135/98. It's very hard to get that diastolic down. I can't believe it's just primary hypertension. there has got to be a cause of the high diastolic and extreme BP swings.
