Blood Pressure too high?

Recommended Posts

My blood pressure normally runs on the lower side 94/72 -118/74.  I have recently upped my salt per the doctors orders. I have started exercising more and drinking a lot of water.  I just bought a home blood pressure cuff and my blood pressure has been between 120/74-125/80.  Today I took my bp while standing and it was 139/83! Is it normal that it goes up when standing, I would think it would drop. I am still having my dizziness and symptoms even though my bp is higher than normal.  Just looking for some feedback about this.  Thanks!

You could take the home BP monitor with you to the Dr. office next time and see how it's measurement compares to the Dr. office reading.  Yours might be off a little.

Mine goes up when standing and is in all the ranges you mentioned. I found it helpful to monitor my BP at home really closely for a couple days and write down the readings. This started to show me some clear patterns. My symptoms don't always correlate with BP and HR....I thought they would!
