I desperately need advice on this issue as well. At resting heart rate my blood pressure is 120/80.
But at a fitness test where i was placed on a bike to make my heart rate increase my bp shot up to 202/80.
Because of this my fitness trainer doesnt want to give me a weights training program until i get an all clear from a GP but the GP says he's never encountered anyoen with my condition. Initially he suggested i do cardio for awhile but not go 140 bpms .. 5 weeks later i got my trainer to retest me. I experienced significant improvement in everything but it did nothing for my blood pressure. When i did the bike test once my heart rate reached 140 my blood pressure was 204/80 (yes my blood pressure at resting heart rate was still 120/80).
The GP didnt know what was wrogn so he gave me a blood test + ecg test + urine sample they were all normal (well not normal my ecg test said 'i have an incomplete right bundle branch block .. tall T waves in lead v3,v4,v5 soemthing technicla like that but the GP said thats probably nothing to worry abuot and unrelated to my blood pressure problem)..
im seeing the cardiologist next wednesday but im still hoping anyone who knows more abuot this condition could contact me please my email is email@example.com
: : : 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.
