Hey everyone! Can anyone give me a little guidance as far as blood pressure goes? It’s been higher than usual lately?
I do suffer from bad anxiety so maybe that contributes to it. But my BP is normally under 120/under 80. But the last couple of days I’ve been 127/81; 127/80; and yesterday I was feeling really nauseous which caused me to get panicked and worry that something went wrong, and my BP shot up to 136/80.
When it was that high I noticed once I relaxed a bit I managed to get the top number down to 115. That was within about an hour or so I wanna say?
I’m also 31, I’m 5’4 and weigh about 123 pounds. I got my PM almost 4 months ago due to sudden 3rd degree heart block. I normally operate on the lower side of blood pressure so it's a bit scary that I'm suddenly dealing with this issue. Oh I also forgot to mention, I'm currently on 180mg of Diltiazem daily because I did once have an episode where my heart rate went up to 150 for a short time and I'm on this daily to prevent it from happening again.
