Low pulse pressure, high dialostic bp and tachycardia


Recommended Posts

Hi, im a 14 year old female and for awhile I have been having consistently high dialostic blood pressure. I'm diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse, and possible innapropriate sinus tachycardia. Could these conditions have anything to do with the high BP? Today my reading was 115/95 about an hour after I woke up, and I've realized that my pulse pressure is apparently low. My systolic number is 99% of the time normal but there has been a few times of it being 130+, while my dialostic is usually 85-95. Is there anything that causes low pulse pressure and should i be concerned20240325_095740.thumb.jpg.bd48cf30461bf01e650fbe790e92af5e.jpg? Thanks

I always notice a correlation between tachycardia, narrow pulse pressure and high diastolic.  That reading pictured looks exactly like many of mine.   I don't know about the impact of mitral valve prolapse but in my case the high HR goes with the other two most of the time.  Have you learned about the cause of your tachycardia?

Thanks for the reply! Glad I've found someone who's going through a similar situation! I'm seeing my cardiologist tomorrow and will mention it to her again and see what she says. My resting heartrate is usually 100-110 but can get as high as 150-160 so that's why I think I have IST, I used to think it was due to POTS but my cardiologist said she doesn't think I have it, but I haven't had a proper tilt table test so I'm not sure if I could still have it or not.
