Spiking Hypertension Reason
I have been taking medication for hypertension for a couple of years now. I eat lots of fruits and veggies and exercise on a regular basis. I have lost about 5 pounds the past year and would like to lose another 5.
I have a home BP monitor and in the past month, my BP has spiked to 180-190/75. Prior to this, it had been in the 125/65 range which I was happy with. I am trying to figure out what would make it spike like that. I have a relatively low-stress life and am a contented person. There have been no changes in my life to warrant those high readings. Any ideas?
I have a dr appt next week and will of course discuss it with him.
