I love hot-bath once a week for my relaxation. However, for the past weeks that was twice weekends, my heart was a sort of 'beating' or 'racing' to the point I needed lying down on the floor of bathroom to gain my strength. Also, I felt very weak due to this during taking bath. After the bath, I feel completely OK, never feel weak, nor my heart beating 'high.'
In my BP history, ... this summer, in August I went to my GP suspecting that I have High-Blood Pressue issue, due to not feeling well every day. He said that my blood-pressue is very high, 260/80. After one month med. therapy with Lisinopril 20mg. per day, my high-blood pressure went down, .... afterwards, my BP continued to improve, .... 160/70.
Since September, I've been taking Lisinopril/HCTZ 20/25 one and a half tabs per day and feeling OK.
Only my concern is whether hot-bath spikes my BP during taking bath?
Any insights on this would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks for your help in advance.
