Blood pressure while sleeping

I feel my blood pressure goes high while sleeping. when I get up I feel muscle pain in left side. I am taking VALZAR 80 with 2.5mg of minipress and in evening VALZAR 40 and 2.5mg of minipress. I need advice what could be reason.

Re: Blood pressure while sleeping

Is there any possibility that you have sleep apnea? I understand that it may be related to hypertension and that pressure may be higher at night. I'm sure that's only one of many causes, but it is something of which you might want to be aware.

Re: Blood pressure while sleeping

im maybe wrong here but im sure our bp and heart hits its lowest point during sleeping hours ....could your muscle pain maybe be a side effect of your medication or just innocent pain with lying on your side too long

Re: Blood pressure while sleeping

Yes, it's quite possible that your blood pressure is soaring when you sleep. I have read of some unbelievably high pressures taken at night but ususally these occurred during apnea events.

Although, someone with untreated sleep apnea may have extremely high pressures when they sleep, the pressures may also remain elevated during the day. That is why it is so important to screen yourself for sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. Treating apnea can bring pressures down considerably, and do so without meds.

As far as the muscle pain, it is quite likely that it is a side effect of the medication you are taking.


PS It is possible that your medication is elevating your pressures...this can be a side effect for some people.
