I am currently confused about my bp. I have hbp and I take metoprolol and hydrochlorothiazide. I will skip right to the point. While on my treadmill I decided to stop and check my bp to see how high while walking at a fast pace and it was 155/95! Im confused because I read somewhere diastolic is supposed to decrease during exercise. Please help...this has me confused and worried.

it all depends on how long you've been exercising like this and what else you've been doing to create an overall healthy lifestyle. If you've just started out on the treadmill, you may need to start by taking slow longer walks outside and not do any jogging or maybe it's the time of day your doing it and the environment.
So many variables to consider.. need more of a background to answer better..
Im very much a newbie on the treadmill. I was walking at a fast pace for about 10 minutes when I checked it. I am really out of shape. I've just started eating healthy as well. The metoprolol is for the hpb and mvp. I hope this helps you to help me.
