Re: Low to high blood pressure
The thing that would concern me about this mostly is that anyones 'normal" BPs that suddenly jump up,even to what would be considered to be normal,should be evaluated,really.i am normally hypotensive which even became much worse after a spinal cord injury affected many areas one which controls BPs.for me.120 systolic would indeed be considered 'high" for me.
The confusion would also indicate a possible problem here too.BPs are very individual.BPs that would be considered 'normal" for one person,could be out of the norm for someone else.the big thing is to look at what 'her" norm usually is and seeing the big raise only because her particular norm is at a more hypotensive range,could indicate a problem.I am thinking,given the symptoms you mentioned,that her kidneys could be playing a part here.I really would go with her to her docs and discuss this sudden jump in her BPs and have them(just to ease some worried minds)do some bloodwork on her kidneys.any really caring doc would do this just to ease minds if for nothing else.
The BIG thing here is that this is NOT normal for HER.If the doc thinks your nuts,demand that bloodwork be done.you DO have some rights to have any concerns addressed.Always remember,the doc works FOR YOU not the other way around.this really does need some furhter evaluation just to make sure things are okay.good luck and please let me know what you find out,K? **
