monitoring



The last two days I've resumed home BP monitoring and it seems to be consistently 166/100 or above.  Tonight the pain was severe enough to require GTN, which is very rare for me.  This relieved it instantly, which would point to angina, and I took my evening medication.  Before the GTN, my BP was 170/108, which is higher than it has been for over five years, although I am consistent in my medication.  Now it is still 163/93 and I think I will need my medication increased long-term.
