I have extreme fluctuations in my blood pressure within a 24 hour period. One day a morning low of 105/69 to a nighttime high of 177/97. My morning lows have been lower and daytime highs as high as 179/103. I was on Topral XL dose of only 6.25 mg. once a day. While on this my morning lows were extreme - 87/56, 88/57, 76/48. I blacked out once when I got up in the middle of the night hitting my head. My doctor took me off the Topral. My lows are not as bad but the highs are still really high at times. I am taking Klonopin and Zanaflex for anxiety and migraines. I have had every blood test run and my doctor (who is wonderful and very caring) is even frustrated. I am concerned about damage these fluctuations can be causing to my heart. I have also developed rosacea. I am tired all the time. I need to exercise but the exertion causes the "rosacea" to flare to an unbearable extent. I am not overweight and have limited my salt most of my life. Any suggestions?
