Blood pressure rises when I stand up?

Hey, I have a question about my blood pressure, when I measure it while sitting it reads usually around 100-115 / 60-68, but if I stand up and measure it again it inmediately goes up to 120-125 / 80-85. Heart rate goes from 70 sitting to 90 standing.

Is this something I should be concerned about or is it a normal reaction? Lately I've been a bit dizzy especially when walking, not dizzy as in vertigo but as in a mild fainting sensation.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, the best place to start is by seeing your doctor and running all this by them. They will run all the proper blood tests and checks and advise further. In the mean time adopt a healthy lifestyle . No salt, processed food , lose weight , no stress. I found pure camomile tea drops my blood pressure down 10-20 points, make sure you try camomile tea , and off course see your doctor . Your blood pressure is too high. I hope this helps.

I tried  taking vitamin K2  and camomile tea to make my blood pressure lower but it didn't help. That's why I went to my doctor who prescribed me Actelsar HCT, you can read more here  . And I can tell that now I feel a little bit better and my blood pressure is lower. I hope this helps

I just stumbled upon this. Your BP symptoms elevation while getting up is known to be from adrenal fatigue.

Adrenal fatigue is not recognized by most conventional MD's, rather alternative MD's and Naturalpaths.

It does exist, google it. Do you feel tired AND wired? - thats adrenal fatigue.
