I have been diagnosed just this past May with Neurocardiogenic Syncope aka Neurally Mediated Hypotension which is a form of dysautonomia. I have autonomic testing in 3 days (getting in takes so long doesn't it?). I would say your heart rate looks alright, not quite a 30 point change necessary for one type of dysauto (POTS) but that doesn't exclude other types like what I have. Your bp acts like mine does, especially the diastolic. My heart rate tends to go high, tachycardia being 100 bpm and above and I regularly go into 130's by standing and 170's by just walking. Then suddenly my pulse drops into 30's or 20's and I drop as well, haha!
Your laying is a good bp number but when diastolic fluctuates more than 10 points (systolic range of acceptable variance is 20 point change) it is something to ask about for sure. So that change in diastolic from 72-106 makes me wonder about your sympathetic response.
When I feel particularly bad my bp goes from laying 109/49 to standing 137/122. The issue here is pulse pressure, which is calculated by simply subtracting the diastolic from systolic, so 109-49 = 60 = wide pulse pressure, and after standing 137-122 = 15 = narrow pulse pressure. Your pulse pressures seem stable to me, but I would still ask about your standing bp because it is elevated, over 140 sys and over 90 dia.
Experts now suggesting the NASA 10 minute standing test. I've been doing it for a year, every couple of weeks. Much more consistent results and you can do it at home at no cost. Checkout the Batemen (SP) Center website.
Idk.. but you don’t have POTS so my work here is fine!
Hello and welcome to the forum. We wanted to hear back from you with any update after seeing your doctor. Dysautonomia can be a bit difficult to diagnose. Did your blood pressure go up or down with the tilt table?
