I am 61 year old woman and also have been diagnosed last year with exercise induced hypertension, however do not have high blood pressure during normal activities.
Due to shortness of breath I wore a heart monitor for 30 days with no abnormalities. I then had a treadmill stress test which is when the hypertension was noted. I reached 189/? shortly after starting an easy jog. No blockages were found on the CT. I checked my BP at the gym while on the elliptical with reading at warmup 144/60, stepping off and rechecking within 5 min at 129/74. Then went to a faster pace for 7 min and hit 195/67, rested for 3 min the reading was 126/57. So I drop to normal very quickly.
I have tried Lisinopril starting at 10mg down to 1.25 mg and experienced low BP so discontinued.
My questions are, is there any other tests that I should be requesting to find an underlying cause? Is there any other medication that does not lower blood pressure that might be suggested? Are there clinical trials out there to look into?
