Re: 144/74 doctor said normal?
Thanks for your reply.
My blood pressure drops when I stand... read on..
I had been sitting in the endo office for 30min before the pressure test talking to him about my symptoms.
The reason I went to the endocrinologist was because for the last 8 years I have been feeling a bit strange, foggy head, slight tremors, I get confused hard to focus and concentrate, fatigued, I get really irritable at times. I seem to get a feeling of low blood sugar when hungry (but not always when hungry) sometimes food doesnt help. I ended up getting myself a blood glucose meter to see what my blood sugar was like when I was feeling that way. It was never low around the 100range. An hour after eating sometimes it would get up over 140 but seem to settle back down an hour or so after that. So that ruled out low blood sugar.
I ended up buying a blood pressure meter the same day I posted the first post, as I got home to do the first test my heart was pounding as I do worry a low and was worried what the reading would be, first reading was 129/75, second reading few min later went up to 150/80, my heart was at 130BPM, its hard to get a good reading cause as soon as I think about doing it I can feel the worry setting in. but if Im really calm I can get it to around 130/72. I just did a reading a few min ago, straight after sitting down I got 144/75, then 160/90, then I waited a few min and did it again I got 137/70, I then stood up and tested again I got 118/65 I have noticed that the numbers do drop after standing, yesterday It dropped 15points after standing, today 19 points.
I do worry a lot and am pretty stressed with getting my business up an running.
Im 30 year old male, tall slim.
Anyone have any idea what could be wrong with me?
