Hi. I'm a 25 year old female. At the end of my pregnancy last year, I had a bit of an elevated bp. Just slightlt, no measures were taken because of it. After birth, at six week checkup, it was okay. Then about 5 months later i took my pressure and it was real high, went to the er, and found that I needed a bigger cuff. Then ok readings. I started with a new family doc right after. He had me take my bp 3 times a week for a month. They were: 142/96(first w/doc-nerves <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">), 142/85, 142/90, 142/82, 119/74, 150/84, 121/85, 134/89, 137/81, 130/70(follow up w/doc. He said it had come down nicely w/no treatment then put me on bp med-Lotensin. I'm definately confused. My older sister had probs with her BP during pregnancy and it took 6 months for it to go back to normal. There is a history on my mom's side. My mom's bp is controlled with a water pill and my grandma had to be taken off hers since her bp was getting too low. I was just wondering what your take was on this. I tried a few docs for second opinions and so far haven't been able to find a doc who wll give one, so I'm going to call my obgyn since it may be pregnancy related since I was fine before that. Thanks in advance.
