High Blood Pressure
My blood pressure went over 220 a couple of weeks ago sending me to the hospital. They run numerous tests which came out ok including EKG, MRI, Ultrasound, Bubble test, CT Scan and for a 73 year old man did pretty good. They sent me home with a bp of 170 and said it would come down. Two days later I was back in the ER with 200+ blood pressure and again sent home once it came down some. Got lots of blood pressure medicine I take but, for some reason in the morning my blood pressure shots up about 50 points and goes over 200. We load up on more bp medicine and relaxer pills and after a few hours it comes down to 130 – 150. I don't know why this is happening and the Cardiologist won't see me for another month. I just got my calcium score but he won't tell me what it is until our meeting. Can anyone give me any advice how to stop the spike in my blood pressure.
