I am currently using ace inhibitor. Also found that sodium is one of my major problems. If my sodium level gets up , My blood pressure will get up as much as 165/60 and stay there . Works like this pressure is low, around 100. As the day goes on. My pressure will climb up and stay there until I go to bed. Next day same problem. When increase my sodium pill to 2 per day and change my diet to lower my sodium intake I will lose weight and my blood pressure will stay down all day.

Hi @exboater

It sounds like you have found the key to keeping your blood pressure down, at least as it relates to sodium. What does your doctor say about this?

I'm wondering if you have had a stress test or any other diagnostic tests related to the heart?

My "stiff heart" is related to heart valve issues, mainly aortic insufficiency. Do you have any valve issues?

Moderate exercise is so helpful. Do you have a moderate exercise program?
