    • I had very high blood pressure with my daughter when I was pregnant and it returned with a vengeance three weeks ago and basically I just had to go to bed and switch everything off – they sedated me – it's better now but I'm avoiding the medication route.
      Do you know what has triggered it ? Mine was stress and me not dealing with it properly

    • if your blood pressure is VERY high I strongly suggest a dr visit!
      Don’t be at risk for a stroke....

      Stress caused mine to go up and also a lil trip to ER via ambulance for heart attack which ended up being a stress attack....High bp is nothing to put off.

      Sorry to sound so mean but I just care about all the fabbers on here!heart

    • Yes I agree...get it checked...High blood pressure is nothing to fool around with...can cause heart attacks, strokes...all sorts of complications...please get it checked as soon as you can...I am on 12.5 mg of hydrochlorizide and Atacand 8mg once a day, and I get my BP checked once every 2 weeks...I had a hell of a time with it in the beginning...finding the right combo of meds was the problem...It is in check now but whenever I get stressed...there is always a slight rise in it...but I am doing all I can to keep it at a reasonable level.

    • Not good to have that much stress from your job.  Have you ever had to be on blood pressure medication before or is this the first time it’s really gotten high?

    • I use to work at a job that was so stressful, I would call my hubby from work and just cry and vent to him. I can Imagine how my blood pressure was back then. I use to get such bad headaches, I take medication now, and no more headaches unless It’s a migrain one and those just don’t go away. I also left that job and took a couple years off and I felt so much better. I work at a job now that I love and very less stress. hearthappy

      Whatever you decide to do, I hope you are happy and good luck. Hopefully your BP will get back to normal.

    • Yikes!
      I think I would try yoga to relax and I have many customers to use 2 natural supplements to lower BP and work on your over all cardiovascular system to avoid prescription.

    • I have high blood pressure, got it around 39 and I am now 42.  My doctor is considering taking me off.  I have lost weight through change in eating habits and exercise.  I try and exercise at least 50 minutes at least 3-4 times per week.  However an immediate reaction to blood pressure for me is some yoga.  Staying in a room just you alone with some yoga music (get at Walmart) helps.  Find that moment to relax.  I to had a stressful job as a Law Administrative Assistant and head of Banking Department in the Law firm for 19 years. when I turned 40 I had a change to Health and became a Nursing Assistant.  I got to control my hours and had a grip on my life. Now in school but Consider looking into other options of interest in your job.  Remeber STRESS KILLS.  Wish you all the best and run to the Doctor.

    • I have never had high bp, Jank, but had stress related headaches,tight chest,panic attacks,blah,blah.  Read a book 3 yrs ago, the “Blood Type Diet.” Can’t remember the author, but I started eating differently, drinking lots of water,made some lifestyle changes and exersizing regularly.  I am a whole different person now and feel wonderfully healthy.  Had a heart checkup a few weeks ago and am doing great.  The whole philosophy of eating right for my blood type appealed to me and I stick with it pretty faithfully.
