Blood pressure & menopause?
I've always had low blood pressure - an average reading would be about 106/62, for instance. I've started having peri-menopause symptoms for the last 2-3 years (I'm 51) and my periods are now sometimes irregular - so its obvious what is happening. But just in the last few weeks I've taken my bp a few times, and the top number has been 120-125 almost every time. Is it normal to have higher bp when in menopause? I think I remember reading that somewhere, but wondered if anyone else has noticed this in themselves.
