High & Low Blood Pressure board


Hi,

It's been five days since I've stopped Corgard. My heart rate goes up in the early morning for some reason. My bp range averages 125/85. Some higher, some lower...more, unfortunately, closer to 90. I really, really, really, don't won't to go back on meds. I've been to the ER twice with side effects. I've lost weight (five pounds) can't lose anymore or I'll be underweight. I'm exercising again, although I seemed to have lost a lot of my stamina in the past few months. I'm taking supplements that help lower blood pressure. I have a very healthy diet, just bad genes! I can't be on Beta Blockers because they gave me asthma-like symptoms. I'm not sure if I should be patient to see if it goes down on its own. It actually was higher in January 140/100 and I even had some 150/110, so I guess this is progress. But, is this as good as it gets without meds? It seems that the doctors want ALL readings to be at 120/80 or below with no exceptions.
