I am noticing my diastolic is like 75-85 after midnight. I am a little anxious at those times, but I usually always am when measureing my BP.
I wonder why my diastolic creeps up a little during late night? When I wake up in the morning it's fine.
I didn't think sleepiness (I'm usually not all that tired feeling at around 1-3AM) causes disatolic BP to rise a little, does it?
I am thinking its anxiety-related, but the thing that gets me is I've rarely seen >80 before (even at late night) a few days ago. It's been like 3 or 4 days since this started happening.
And sometimes during the day when I first sit down to test and I am a pretty anxious I will see a 80s diastolic as well and like I said, I almost never seen this before a few days ago...
I'm only 17 and I usually get 60s and low 70s for diastolic. This is worrying me
So lets say it is anxiety, well... that makes me feel a little better, but why did this just start happening? I don't feel any different.
EDIT: Well, It's 2:45 AM and I just took my BP again and I actually got a good diastolic reading: 68. This really makes me think it's going up due to anxiety, but why all the sudden does my heart decide to increase the diastolic when I'm anxious?
I've actually got myself to calm down and now I'm getting my norm diastolic readings. So, I guess it is anxiety, but I still need to know if anyone has any ideas as to why my diastolic rises more than it used to when I'm anxious?
