In Reply to: I don't understand why my BP goes up and down like a yoyo posted by Tammy on March 15, 2000 at 16:47:33:
: I went to the doctors last week. My BP has been great. She took it and it was 145/95. I was like what. I felt great so I have no idea why
: it was like that.
: Well I have to take it 3 times a day. Morning, noon and night. Well I have been and in the morning it is 127/80 and at noon it is 134/81 and then
: at night it is 144/89. I don't know why this happens.
: Now is 145/95 really all that high. I am on Verapamil 180mg once a day. I used to be on Plendil 2.5mg until my BP went up to 200/110 and then it got changed.
: My BP has been great for a while now. Like a year. Why all of a sudden would it go up like that and should I worry.
: I don't think 145/95 is all that high.
: Any response would be great. Thanks
BP throughout the day will vary. The magnitude is
dependent on physical activity before your take it. The conditions of the meAsurement should always be the same if you wish to minimize the inherent varation.
