I am a senior citizen of advanced age. I did not have the BP but I was advised to start taking Tinarmin 25 mg about 20 yrs back as it helps keeping healthy heart (though I have no heart problem). My BP remains 120--60 for most part of the year. I noticed over the last about 4 yrs that only for about 2 winter months, it goes up to 155/70. Then it automatically returns to my normal BP i.e 120--130/60. We use gas heaters during winters.
Now my question is as to why the BP goes up just for 2 winter months. Doctors say that one sweats in summers which is a reason but sweating summer season does not even start when my BP comes down. Does any one has such an experience?View Thread
I feel that reduced sun light or lack of exercise/activity could not be the reason for higher BP in my case in winters. It appears to be a seasonal change in winters as mentioned in your initial reply. It is only my systolic BP which goes up and it does not come down with additional drug (Easyday 50 mg) given by the Doc during last two winters.
Anyway these days, I am OK with 120/55 though the full summer season has still not set in our country; Pakistan.View Thread
