I have questioned these variations due to undesired symptoms. My BP & HR (all resting) can be anywhere from 98/65 64 to 167/103 102. I don't get white coat symptoms at the doctors office. I take Diazide/Maxide (for BP/HR and edema), Lopressor (for BP/HR)and low dose aspirin (for atrial septal aneurysm) along with Lipitor (for high hsCRP).
I get lightheaded often no matter where my level seems to be. It's odd when it is low it feels like it is pounding like crazy. I have checked it at home thinking it would be high and it is not. Then other times it is a regular 120 some over 80 some with an 80 some heart rate in which is perfect. Lately it has been riding a little high but then other days it sinks. I only check it when I'm feeling rough or when my weekly reminder tells me to.
On a treadmill test I reach my max. rate within a minute or two so it jumps really fast. The good news is it falls right back down. So it is working right.
My problem is with the symptoms all the time of being lightheaded, blurred vision, heavy arms, legs, chest and headaches and palps and/or chest pains. Last oxygen level check was 92. My echocardiogram was pretty good last year and even though my EF has dropped from 73% down to 52% all is still within range.
My glucose numbers have been under control (been keeping them between 80-110) and thyroid issues are ok too I believe....(Insurance does not cover the FT3 or FT4 just TSH and T4) What can be causing this to happen? Any clues????????
I have a doctors appointment on Friday for womanly issues. Should I bring my BP and HR issues up to her too at this appt. or is it possible that this is normal changes for me?
Will be scheduled for a U/S of thyroid recheck for certain and possibly a CT of my stomach due to pains and bloating ~3 out of every 4 weeks.
Very confused and frustrated with BP/HR issues (with symptoms listed above), womanly issues (cyst), hair thinning out, coughing that makes me run out of breath and/or vomit, back pain, and all over pain issues threw out my body and spasms (usually just happen in winter months)..
Any clues or advice welcome. I have no idea where on here to even post any more. ;~/
