125/90

I have moved back home from Texas Back to Colorado. My bp has been great but now I noticed it's mostly 125/90 most the time I take it. The 90 is a bit high! I am so tired of my diastolic being high no matter what I do.

Should I be worried with my numbers? I don't have a doctor yet since I just moved here and it's been a crazy move. Had to kennel my beloved dogs, moved in and out of 3 hotels, looking for houses, little kids demanding and screaming. Is it just stress? Why wouldn't my top number be high too then?

Re: 125/90

Hi,

I think you are young, are you? younger people, like me, tend to have a higher diastolic then older people. I think your blood pressure is good and no need to worry about it. Are you on medication?
Good luck

Re: 125/90

Depending on age the borderline hypertensive number I have always seen is 140/90. So your diastolic number is something you may want to keep an eye on.


If it concerns you don't hesitate to have it checked out. Mine was 90 when I was in grade school- I'm 35 now, and an hour ago it was 212/135.

Don't scare yourself with your current number, but do be mindful to keep it in check if it starts to go higher.

Re: 125/90

You have some serious numbers! I am sure they checked your heart?

Oh yes, thoroughly! I just had a minor heart attack last month, and for the past 5 years I have had CHF. After 20 years of tests and pills, turns out that I have sleep apnea. I have significant heart damage needlessly.

So the moral of the story is- be vigilant

Keep an eye on it, and if you get concerned or have any questions, see your doc! ( and maybe get a second opinion too )

Re: 125/90

I will look into that. I am trying to solve this mystery on my own since my doctors can't figure it out.

My pulse races and I get short of breath on BP medication. I have been on benicar, Azor and now lisinopril. Only thing they all have in common is HCTZ. I am wondering if the HCTZ is responsible for this.

Re: 125/90

Be sure that with all the moving stress you keep properly hydrated.

And try to have a good sleep every night.

Re: 125/90

Yea bp medications can cause those side effects, namely HCTZ and ARBs like Benicar and Cozzar. Have you tried beta blockers? if you have anxiety I would recommend a baby dose of beta blocker, ask your doctor about it. But before that it wouldn't hurt to give magnesium Chelated a try , you might end up loving it like me and my mother.
Good luck

Re: 125/90

I did have this problem on benicar so I stopped. I am also concerned about the diastolic being so high most the time. It jumps easily into the high 90's and 100's all the time whilst the systolic is often normal.

Re: 125/90

You may have isolated diastolic hypertension. Stress affects both numbers for me, but more noticeable in my systolic pressure. I would see a cardiologist or nephrologist in the area for workup.

Re: 125/90

They did a full MRI on all my organs a year ago. They weren't looking for a blockage in my kidney but they should have seen it if there was one. I'll wait until after the holidays and talk to my new doc about what we should do.

I recently moved back home from Texas to Colorado. I wondered if the altitude exacerabted old symptoms, but I had these symptoms before I moved. Just worse here.

Re: 125/90

Good that you did have a thorough workup in the past.

Not common, but I was diagnosed with a UPJ obstruction at the age of 31. This caused a very hydronephrotic kidney. After surgery, pyeloplasty, it was found that I had a crossing vessel that crimped my ureter and caused the block. Strangely, I had this since birth, but it wasn't picked up on until the age of 31...it was asymptomatic.
