Re: Anyone's body trying to maintain a certain BP?
I am on a diuretic, plus I have re-incorporated 2.5 mg of lisinopril back into my treatment. I respond very well to even this baby dose of lisinopril.
I tend to agree with the "built in" BP control. When my BP goes high, my pulse is lower, and vica versa. It seems as though my body "likes" my pressure to be at least 135/80. When I was taking a higher does of lisinopril (10mg) my pressure was routinely 125/72 and I had no energy and was light-headed, etc. But when it is higher, I feel better.
Does your body adjust to lower readings after awhile? Or are some here still feeling crummy, with good BP numbers?
