Fluctuating blood pressure
Hello, I’m fairly new to Mayo Connect and just joined this group today. I had an episode 2 days ago of a sudden spike in blood pressure – 200/110. Went to ER and my BP stayed up for a number of hours. They gave me two pills to gradually reduce the BP and sent me home with a prescription. The next morning when I measured my BP, it was back to normal – actually lower than 120/80. At one point it was 94/62, but most of the day it stayed around 113/68. So I didn’t take the meds, scared that it would bring my BP too low. What can cause this fluctuation and should I be worried about stroke? Thanks.
