Whacky Bottom Blood Pressure

I was wondering if any of you have blood pressure where the bottom number goes up before falling. Yesterday I was having a horrible spell and my blood pressure was 105/95 and my heart was 179. I had just been standing for a few minutes. I wanted to take it again but couldn't make it any longer. I am in a rare sub-group of POTS. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

this can definitely be the case. the difference between the systolic & diastolic numbers is known as the pulse pressure; a particularly high or low pulse pressure can contribute to anyone feeling cruddy. i have had both over the years.

I tend to have a pretty narrow pulse pressure (100/80, 90/80, etc.) when I am standing, from the few times it's been measured. It seems to be fairly common w/ POTS.
