I am a 33 year old female and had trouble only with my blood pressure during pregnancy, but lately I haven't been feeling well and took my blood pressure and it is 127/98 with a pulse of 116. Is this normal? I also have been having problems with being dizzy and also my legs are hot to the touch. Are these related?
I of course am not a doctor but I have hypertension and take my bp twice a day. the systolic (top number) is ok but would be better around 115-120 but the diastolic (bottom number) is too high and your pulse is also high. a normal diastolic number would be 75-80 and normal pulse is 60-100. I also had normal bp until my pregnancy in 2008 and the last month it started going up and I had to have my baby 10 days early. I thought it would be fine after delivery but went even higher. One week after her birth I took it at home and it was 200/130 and I was hospitalized for a day and all kinds of tests were ran and came back normal. I was diagnosed with essential hypertension.
