Lightbulb high blood pressure (falling down spells)

hi well can falling down be from high blood pressure as well as low b/p i have high b/p sometimes its normal but most times since i got thyriold illness my b/p has went up and i mean high last dr visit it was 180/110 heart rate was 140 2 weeks ago it was 138/106 heartrate was 100,ok in april i didnt have it checked as i wasnt feeling good so i didnt get a chance to have it checked my husband is buying me a b/p kit im also on b/p meds and yesterday may 12th it was 119/75 heart rate was 107 but i do have bad aneity so thats prob why the heartrate is up .ok in march heres my readings.

3/25/07--180/99 heartrate 98
3/26/07--140/124 heartrate 100
3/27/07--134/118 heartrate 100
now im checking again today but yesterday it was great after just starting my blood pressure pills my heartrate stays high though but i use to get great b/p readings i use to see numbers like 104/69 120/70 134/75 but that was way before i got thyriold see about 2 weeks ago i went to dr for my visit for my thyriolds and my left upper arm was hurting i was on tricore 145 mg and zocore 20 mg but only for 12 days my arm was hurting so he had me stop taking them to see if the pain went away it didnt it got worse so friday may 11th my arm started hurting really bad i put bengay on it plus took 2 otc pain meds it still didnt stop so i called the dr and he said come in right away but husband had to take me as i been having falling down spells since sept before i knew i had thyriold and been doing it ever since it just hits me out of the blue what happens is my mind goes blank i get dizzy shaky nervous i forget what im doing and where im at then start getting scared and my stomach starts hurting bad then i try to stop myself from falling but down i go could this be from high blood pressure dr said once my thyriolds level out my b/p may get better he gave me 15 darvacet n 100 pain pills to help so far they help a little but not alot but i guess he will figure it out when i go back or does it take time before the darvacet starts working? .......................vic

Re: high blood pressure (falling down spells)

Hi Vickie,

Not sure what your arm pain is-hopefully the Dr. make sure it wasn't heart related. Sounds like you are hyperthyroid which probably contributes to your anxiety. My hypertension started with with thyroiditis & hyperthyroidism so I can relate to that. What b/p med are you on? I got arm pain from Cozaar but it was both arms. Are you seeing a endocrinologist for your thyroid condition? Have the Drs decided what is the cause of your thyroid condition. Take it easy. Your body is working overtime with the thyroid hormones pouring out so you need to rest as much as possible. Fam
