I just came back from the doctor's and my blood pressure was at 174/102. I have been on Cozaar to control my blood pressure. My blood pressure when I started medication was only borderline, 140/90. I have been on Cozaar for about 2 years. My doctor changed my medication but I am concerned that this is a high number. My father has had 6 strokes so I really want to get this under control and quickly. I am 42, non-smoker, female and not overweight. Should I be concerned? Why would it be so high now when I previously have not seen these numbers? On medication, I average 130/80 and rising to about 150/94 when I am ill. I have just gotten over a sinus cold or infection. Would this cause these numbers? I also am experiencing itchy gums which I think might be a result of the elevated blood pressure? Has anyone every experienced this?
Thanks, Carol
