Blood Clot Cause High Blood Pressure
I'm 28 w/extensive blood clot history now high blood pressure wht could cause high BP at my age? Bp meds are not working
Need Workup: Hypertension is often genetic and it is not unusual to develop it under the age of 30. But there are other factors that should be considered. Some kidney diseases can cause blood clots and high blood pressure (lupus is one). Some medications can do the same (oral contraceptives). There are other factors (alcohol, obesity, adrenal disease) and medications that can increase BP without causing clots. ...Read more
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more
What is the risk of a blood clot after gallbladder surgery in a patient with high blood pressure and tachycardia?
It depends: The high blood pressure and tachycardia (rapid heart rate)are common after surgery due to stress and not necessarily indicators or causes of a blood clot. However, some people do in fact develop a blood clot after surgery and a rapid heart rate might be a sign warranting further evaluation. ...Read more
If a person has high blood pressure & they are taking medication for it if they stop taking their medicine for a period of time will blood clots form?
Continue BP mmeds: If you stopping taking BP medicines, you expose yourself to all the complications of untreated bp. These are chf, heart attacks (mi), strokes (cva), and renal failure. Blood clots in your veins are not a complication, atherosclerotic plaques in your coronary and cerebral arteries can form causing mi's and cva's. Please do not stop your meds. Speak to your md about changing them if needed. ...Read more
I am 92 have prostate cancer, high blood pressure and problems with blood clots. I take eligard, (leuprolide) nefridene for bo. Can I take blk cohosh for flashes?
Here are...: Probably not although cohosh has been used for female menopause-related hot flash. If being reasonably coping with it well, I don't advise using it. As to using eligard, (leuprolide) I wouldn't comment on its use due to unclear intended goal for its current use. As to nefridene, I assumed you meant nefidipine? More detail, ask and talk with your doc timely; online for such is inadequate for your present need. ...Read more

Can a blood pressure cuff inflated to 200mm Hg Pressure (max) and then slowly released, cause blood clot in arm?
Is there a correlation between blood pressure and risk of blood clots and embolisms? My BP is normal but I worry about clots a lot.
Indirectly.: A decreased blood pressure, if it is associated with a decreased flow, may increase the risk of blood clotting. High blood pressure is frequently associated with increased flow and therefore less pooling of blood, and less clot formation. Most blood clots occur in the calf muscles, so long car rides or airplane rides should include walking breaks or calf muscle movement. ...Read more
Arm blood clots: Unlikely that a BP cuff is the cause of blood clots in the arm unless left inflated for an extended period - hours. Sounds as if you were in the hospital and usual cause of blood clots in the arm is the IV placed causing thrombophlebitis. This is usually due to an infection of the vein or potentially due to medications given through the iv. ...Read more
Are most strokes in pregnancy due to high blood pressure conditions or blood clot somehow going to brain? I'm terrified of pregnancy because of this
Clotting disorder: Most strokes, in pregnancy occur when the patient has an underlying thrombophilia, or clotting disorder. Often this is not known until after the fsct. If you have a strong family history of blood clots, strokes or heart attacks, you might want to be evaluated for your risk. If there is no history, I would not worry about it, as the risk would be extremely rare. Also, not smoking can decrease risk. ...Read more
In order for stroke to occur in pregnancy, wouldn't you need a really high blood pressure to break a artery in brain or blood clot to lodge it?
No no no no no: That's like asking, "In order to ruin a casserole, don't you have to undercook the potatoes? " There are all kinds of ways to ruin a casserole, & stroke in pregnancy may be due to numerous causes of which BP is only 1. Stroke in pregnancy is a "heterogeneous" entity, i.e. may be due to a "laundry list" of conditions. Periodic reviews of it appear for clinicians in journals and textbooks on stroke. ...Read more

Yes: Anger and stress can increase BP temporarily, and chronic anxiety can do this long-term. Be worth seeing a licensed psychologist for advice on anger and stress. However, most people with high blood pressure also have a genetic background that means hypertension will not normalize with stress management. So drug therapy may well be needed too. ...Read more

There may also be the problem of the increased intracranial pressure may cause a blood pressure elevation to compensate and low blood flow in the brain. ...Read more
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) (Definition)
Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure occurs when blood pressure is 140/90 or higher. A systolic blood pressure (top number) is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum contraction and a diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum relaxation. ...Read more
