I have Graves disease and just experienced a coronary artery spasm. When I first experienced this, I was hospitalized (in July), given a heart cath (no blockages) and meds. During the spasm today my blood pressure elevated from 130/81 up to 183/93 at it's peak. Has anyone experienced these types of blood pressure peaks during a spasm? Since I have Graves disease, I have been prescribed the following meds - 500mg niacin once daily, Isosorb (Imdur) 60mg (extended release) once daily (once I take an Imdur, the spasm subsides) hydroclorot 25mg once daily, Lipitor 10mg once daily and Methimazol (Tapazole for thyroid) 10mg twice daily. If anyone out there has experienced this, please let me know and let me know what your dr is telling you about this.
