High blood pressure 150/85. And racing heart rate 125. Blood work done,  everything came back normal, CT scan is normal, and urine was normal.

Some considerations include: fever, anemia, pain, anxiety, XS thyroid, alcohol withdrawal. More ominous considerations: congestive heart failure, sepsis, DKA. This list isn't all. ...Read more

Why is a sitting blood pressure reading higher than a standing blood pressure reading?

Why is a sitting blood pressure reading higher than a standing blood pressure reading?

Gravity: The short answer is the effect of gravity. When you stand up, your blood will "pool" in your lower extremities. The body has to increase the heart rate and vascular tone in order to keep blood pumping upwards towards your arms, neck and head. It is typical for the blood pressure to fall a little bit when you stand up; if it falls too much, this can be abnormal though, and should be evaluated. ...Read more

Does methycobol injection raise blood pressure in a previously normal person with normal blood pressure reading?

Does methycobol injection raise blood pressure in a previously normal person with normal blood pressure reading?

However, a one time elevated blood pressure does not mean you have hypertension, which is diagnosed by elevated blood pressures most of the time not just once in a while. ...Read more
