Question My Anemia and Blood Pressure!!!

I am being treated for anemia my anemia is slight but my iron storage my ferritin level was a 4 they like it between 20 and 110....

After going through all these tests...for stomach and finding Nothing.....I do take Nexium for acid reflux.....

They finally put me on an iron supplement twice a day....for the past two months....I have felt so much better I was soooo drained before getting on iron......

In November after 3 months.....they are to check my ferittin levels.....

Here's my problem my blood pressure has started being high....

I just walked three miles in the mall......and when i finished.....i checked my bp in the car and it was 189 over 99 and my pulse was 82.....

i can find nothing on anemia and high blood pressure....just low blood pressure....

Any input would be appreciated!!!! Thank You!

I'd be a little wary of the accuracy of your BP reading if you took it in the car!
What monitor did you use? I would NOT trust a wrist or finger monitor..... and if you were using an arm-cuff system, how did you support your arm in the car???

Did you wait at least a half hour after the 3-mile mall walk?

Lastly, have you been getting these high readings consistently over a period of time? Or was this a one-shot deal?

Yes...I took it in the car ......sitting the proper way etc....

I have taken it with a cuff and a I would not be posting if this was a one time thing.....

It always goes up during activity ......if i do sit in bed for three hours.....i can get a 12 0's over 70's....which i have had most my life.....
