Question not sleeping on left side with high blood pressure?

Has anyone ever heard of this? I was told by a friend that you should not sleep on your left side if you have high blood pressure?

Re: not sleeping on left side with high blood pressure?

I just had a baby in Jan of this year and I had high blood pressure during the pregnancy and after. While I was pregnant, in order to lower my bp, they had me lay on my left side. Apparently this is more effective than laying on your right side.. I've never heard that it would be bad for you to sleep on your left side if your bp is high, but that's just me.. It was always encouraged for me in order to lower bp. And they certainly never told me not to sleep on my left side - they actually made sure I was sleeping on my side during pregnancy. (left or right)
