For many years, I battled chronic high blood pressure. I started taking my blood pressure many times a day, back in 1998, trying to figure out what was going on with my blood pressure. It wasn't until 2004, six years later, that I was finally able to start getting my nasty high blood pressure down to healthy levels, all the time.

I found out that there are many different causes of high blood pressure. If you are interested in reading what I found out, and what I did, I posted a thread back in July 2009, about how I was able to cure my awful, chronic high blood pressure, titled: [B][COLOR="Blue"]Chronic High BP of 147/93, from 1998 to 2004 based on 14832 readings, now 126/73!

You should try a diuretic next.
