Bp Question


Recommended Posts

I'm curious when you stand up, is a "normal" person's BP supposed to go up??? I know mine always goes down, but I'm just curious what's actually supposed to happen...?!

I think it stays about the same.

The doctor I saw at Mayoclinic when I received my DX told me that it takes POTS patients 3 times as much energy to stand up as it takes a "normal" person because of all the changes that occur when we stand up BP drops, HR goes up, etc.
