Hi @catherinelewis, welcome to Connect! It must scary having your blood pressure going up and down all the time, and not knowing why.

I’m tagging @hopeful33250 and @grandmar as they have some experience with electrical problems in the heart.

What have your doctors said about your blood pressure going up all the time?”


Hello @catherinelewis

I would like to add my welcome to you as you have just joined Mayo Connect. You mentioned that you have electrical problems with your heart. This can certainly be frightening.

Has your doctor given any name to these problems, such as Afib, PVC's, etc.? Have you been prescribed meds for this electrical problem?


Hi Catherine, I too, have spiking blood pressure and electrical problems with my heart. Just had a series of tests and hey showed my mitral valve is leaking more than before. Another valve has started leaking. These findings were worrisome. A Mayo Clinic cardiologist checked my tests, checked me, and said I don't need surgery to repair my heart valves. Woo-hoo! Instead, he prescribed medication to control the rate of my heart beats. Sounds like it's time for you to undergo some tests and find out what's going on with your heart.
