Re: Blood pressure while sleeping
Yes, it's quite possible that your blood pressure is soaring when you sleep. I have read of some unbelievably high pressures taken at night but ususally these occurred during apnea events.
Although, someone with untreated sleep apnea may have extremely high pressures when they sleep, the pressures may also remain elevated during the day. That is why it is so important to screen yourself for sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. Treating apnea can bring pressures down considerably, and do so without meds.
As far as the muscle pain, it is quite likely that it is a side effect of the medication you are taking.
PS It is possible that your medication is elevating your pressures...this can be a side effect for some people.
