High BP AGAIN!!!

Hi all! Went to the doc again today. My BP has been gradually going up since the holidays and went to the doc today and she said my BP was 180/100. She again ordered Renal tests and and echocardiogram if my insurance allows me to take it.

Anyway, I'm on 20mg of Lisinopril the doc gave me hydrochlorazide (I'm going to pick up that med in a bit). I was doing so well with exercise, breathing techiques and the 20mg. All of a sudden this week it went chronically high! What's going on with me???

A little lower systolic - 159/100. But that's just it. She said adding the hyrdoclorizide may help.

Ok, so far my BP is at 143/100. I took my new hydroclorizide about a half hour ago. Let's see how this works.
