I was diagnosed with high BP around 9 years ago, as when i went to the doctors it was showing at 140/99
I was placed on 10mg Ramipril and 1.5mg Benzoflouradzide
Last week i was in hospital to have my gallbladder out, and as part of that they told me not to take my BP medicine as it can affect the anathesia.
Anyway cue surgery, and recovery. day after surgery, BP still low and not really going above "normal" so they asked me not to take my BP medicine and go see my GP.
Anyway so i go see my GP and they suggest not taking my tablets for a few days and home monitor with a home BP monitor.
Now onto the weirdness.....
While im sitting or resting, or lying down - my bp is 130/70 (average)
which i would say is normal.....
BUT while im standing and moving around the diastolic rockets to around 98-105 which is very bad.......
130/100 is kind of not good.....as soon as i sit down, back to 130/70
That would explain why while i was on my tablets, while i was lying or sitting i was suffering from indications of low blood pressure, as the tablets would have dropped it considerably.....
Anyway doc's want to put me back on tablets to cover while im standing high part - but they dont seem that interested in investigating the reason for this, i can understand a slight rise but over 35 on the diastolic???
Any opinions out there?
