Wears off?: How long until your medication wears off? Is it a medication you are to take only once a day? Is your BP high when the head and neck hurt? I would talk to your doctor about adding another medication to your regimen if the BP is going up daily on your current medication, especially since it seems to be causing symptoms. ...Read more

Can you hurt yourself by using to small of a blood pressure cuff? I used mine and my wrist was hiring bad by time I was done.

Can you hurt yourself by using to small of a blood pressure cuff? I used mine and my wrist was hiring bad by time I was done.

Injury unlikely: I have seen bruising on the upper arm due to blood pressure cuff getting too tight. This is usually only a problem with automatic cuffs. Pain in the wrist could result from a cuff becoming too tight resulting in pressure on a nerve that runs down to the wrist. This should resolve shortly without causing damage. Ensure that your blood pressure cuff is proper size to ensure accurate results. ...Read more

When testing my blood pressure, how do I get my arm "at heart level" for standing, sitting, and laying down? My numbers can be falsely low or high.

It's easy: When standing hold your arm out in front of your body, not quite at 90 degrees, so that the blood pressure cuff the same distance from the floor as your heart. While sitting, resting your arm on the arm of a chair usually gets your arm in the right position. While laying down, lay on your back with your arm resting at your side. ...Read more

LargelyNeither. Most: responses=result of huge number of internal (hidden) mechanisms (we are embodied Soul↔Mind↔Brain↔Body creatures sending >1,000,000 orders/sec brain→body with similar feedback). BP=result of https://goo.gl/vxncS2. Primary determinant of CO=blood return, not heart rate; others=ratio of relaxation vs. end contraction volumes. All these=under split sec. brain control. ↑HR without ↑venous return = ↓BP. ...Read more

What is the best way snd time to check your blood pressure laying down for ten minutes or what?

What is the best way snd time to check your blood pressure laying down for ten minutes or what?

Chill, but not much: I advise patients to check their bp first thing in the AM. Sitting down, arm relaxed. I like the Omron automatic cuff (around your upper arm; do not use a wrist device). Keep a diary of your bp and bring to your MD for review if the pressure averages are elevated (greater than 130-140/80-90). Remember, bp is dynamic and being too calm and relaxed is not your "normal" state. ...Read more
