: It has been great. Like 130/80 or lower. Well I just took it and it was 142/95. Why the jump all of a sudden.
: The doctor is having me take it 3 times a day. Well today in the morning it was 130/80, the afternoon it was 127/73 and now
: I just took it and it was 142/95. Why is this?
: Any help will be appreciated.
I too have had varying degrees of BP during the day in the past, and now it's pretty much settled down. I wonder what constitutes HBP? Can some doctor answer this? My doctor told me that everyone's BP fluctuates, even people with HBP, however, it's my opinion that once the damage is done (hardening of the arteries) that the BP pretty much stays on the higher end and doesn't go into the lower. Is this a good assumption? Somebody answer us???!
