I hope I can find someone who has some knowledge on this. I've been to 3 Drs.(?) , none of whom knew the answer. I started having a heaviness in my chest , in the morning. When I got up, it would go away, at first. I also noticed that my BP was elevated upon rising. As time went on, it got more frequent, the Bp increased and chest pains began. Over the next few weeks, the chest pains were almost constant, my BP was out of control and I was having a hard time breathing. One real bad morning, I took myself to the ER . Tests for heart attack were negative.
A cardiologist changed my BP meds (yes, I had been on atenolol for 12 years)
to coreg. Now that did help the chest pain (not completely), and the breathing has greatly improved. What
about my BP???
Why does my blood pressure go up when I lay down for a nap, or watch TV, or sleep at night? It goes back to normal (115/68) during the day when I am active!! Just the opposite of what it should do.
Has anyone had this problem?
I sure would like to feel normal again. Thanks for listening.
