In Reply to: Re: BP and pulse rate during exercise posted by attavaic on March 21, 2000 at 15:06:49:

: : Can someone provide me with a chart of expected blood pressure and heart rate during increasing levels of exercise? In other words, what is normal blood pressure at, for example, a stress induced target heart rate of 130?

: I'm interested in the same information. I would
: think that the most usefull information about BP
: and stroke or heat attacks would be BP at the height of activity level, not as most doctors take it in a relaxed mode.

I was training for my second marathon when I complained to my Doctor that the newly prescribed HBP medicine was sapping my stamina. He suggested a stress test and the results knocked me out ( not literly), but as soon as I started the treadmill test my BP started to climb like a rocket to over 210 on the high side. The medical staff was sure I was going to drop right their on the spot but I was trucking along at a normal pace to me. The EKG's were all normal and the x-rays were also. The Doc has changed the med. and suggested that I don't run further than 3 to 4 miles at a time for now. He mentioned that this was something that the medical types have just recognised in the last 6 to 12 months. Would like to get some input from anyone if they have heard about this or could lead me to a source for more information.
