Does heat have anything to do with blood pressure???
Any ideas helps,tyvm.
High blood pressure and heat dont always mix good !
iv had problems myself a few times with the heat and being on blood pressure meds.
im not sure what happens inside us - but for sure you can not stand in the heat long !
I got dizzy and faint feeling in the heat -over 100deg F. or direct sunlight ! was on a beta blocker med.
and Yes my blood pressure went sky high ! with the heat !!!
its always best to keep hydrated - and out of the sun and heat !! when on meds
your b.p at 160/110 is very high untreated
medicated at 130/ 82 seems more normal readings but it depends on your size waight
and other factors . but that is a way better number.
depending what meds your on or types beta blocker -ace inhibbitor - cal channel blocker
so on down the road - that causes anxous and nervous feelings to happen
they all have side effects that can happen . in heat and not in heat !
but yes indeed the heat will effect you , when on medications for b.p.
best to keep safe ! and out of the heat .
