Since the stent I have gone through rehab and exercise three times a week. I have been losing weight and my blood pressure has been perfect for over a year. Two weeks ago my bold pressure began to jump into the 140's/80-85 and seems to be staying there. My doctor put me on a higher dosage or lisinopril. Two questions: does blood pressure just jump like that or should I be worried about a blockage. All of a sudden I notice mu heart rate jumping into the 130's while excercising but recovers as soon as I slow down. Is that a concern?
I would ask the cardio the questions about blood pressure and heart palpatations. It might be nothing or something, the doctor will test you for possible problem, or problems. Please see the doctor when you can and menetion what you are experiencing, that is the best advice I can give. The doctor will know what to help you understand of what is happening. Hugs for today.
