Cold weather & Hypertension..
Hi..my BP was holding steady with Toprol Xl 25 mg at 130/80 for a year..
since i was on a low dose my doc suggested my bp would be fine if i got off toprol.Then my probelms started. I started feeling strong beats n BP went to 145/85..i was feeling as if i had just went on a sprint even when i was resting.So i got scared n went back to Toprol 25 mg a week ago..now for the past few days im noticing my Bp gets to 150/100 in the evenings.It stays on like that for abt 3-4 hrs.
I wake up in the morning to a reading of 124/84 1 hr after that I read 130/90 and 150/99 in the evening. Yesterday i noticed that the reading came down to 130/85 after a hot bath..
it has been very cold here for the past few days n my heater doesnt work..can cold weather cause BP increases ? or does it have to do with toprol withdrawal.
