I also mentioned that I have had some pretty severe lower back pain for the past few months (progressively getting worse). I have no idea if this has anything to do with it, but I guess it doesn't hurt to mention.
Kidney problems can cause back pains. But I have ABSOLUTELY and idea if the types of kidney problems that can cause back pain are the types that will affect BP.
But in any case, as you describe them, the pains are enough of a symptom that they should be looked at on their own.View Thread
I hear that once I use tablets for BP I have to use it for the rest of my life. Is it true?!
No, often if the underlying condition can be improved by lifestyle modifications.
The basics are to eat Real Food, and reduce packaged & prepared foods as much as possible.
Lose weight if needed.
And get regular exercise.
Normal BP is under 120/80. First stage hypertension is where either the top is above 140 or the bottom above 90. Thus you are barely in that range part of the time.
And normal resting HR is 70-100. Is this just anxiety or something else It is might be, but there is no way to tell over the internet.
But one thing is to make sure that you are "calm" before taking your BP. No exercise, alcohol, or caffeine shortly before taking the test. And have your arm at heart level, feet on the floor and back supported.
And your BP early in the morning and late at night is more indicative of your BP.
I have other conditions, should I list them also?
I assume that you are regularly seeing a doctor. I would discuss this at your next appointment. But no need to make an appointment just for this.View Thread
