Question Very high pulse pressure

I am seeing a cardiologist for quite sometime. My pulse pressure runs between 70 and over 100. It worsens during the night. It's very disturbing and my meds and dosages have been changed month after month with no significant difference. I also have a loud pounding heartbeat in my head. He says it's hyper dynamic heartbeat. My pulse is pretty good most of time but I wake up once or twice every night with this problem. It scares me so I take a low dose anxiety med which helps me get back to sleep. I am 64 and take bp meds. Getting frustrated does anyone else have this? Any advice how to lower it. Others I've read about have lower pp and are worried. Dr wants to lower it but says it's difficult to regulate. ?????

Re: Very high pulse pressure

Hallo out there. Don´t know if you see this. You have exactly the same symptoms as I. Does the anxiety medicine help? Do the not make you tired og something. These symtoms are really tiresome.
Best regards

Re: Very high pulse pressure

Yes anxiety meds help me go back to sleep. It is low dosage so I'm pretty much alert the next day. My meds have been increased and my dr says I sound better. Not as strong pounding but it still is there. He says give it more time. It's metaprolol 100 mg 2x daily anxiety med is clonasepam 0.5mg. Hope this helps you too.
