I do not have any health ins til Aug so trying to hang in til then. I have been keeping tabs with a wrist moniter and not good... bp: flucuates high, 160/130, after sitting for an hour ( maybe due to cervical fusion I have?) drops down to normal when I lay down. Then bp: 148/110 after standing for awhile at an outing. I know when its out of wack, dizzy, headach etc. I had the good luck of a free ekg last wk end at my countys hospital, it was fine, and my bp there was only 148/92, standing. I am 49 yrs female. Does anyone know if severe back issues like I have could raise bp? ( ddd, osteoarthritis, fusion, discectomy) The fact that it goes down, sometimes real low, would mean not to worry? No chest pain, just get real light headed and dizzy.
Wouldn't the ekg be bad if I really had a problem?
