Why do things always happen over the weekend. I had a successful ablation 10 months ago. Apart from extreme breathlessness I had no problems until last night. Felt something go and took my blood pressure and it showed 164/127 and irregular heart beat. I was sitting watching the television at the time. It did come down slowly after a couple of hours and the irregular beat disappeared.
As I live alone, I made a cup of decaf. coffee and read a book until 11.30 p.m. My normal bedtime. Apart from getting up 3 times to go to the "Loo" the breathing wasn't too bad. This morning 7 a.m. after a shower - my bp is 148/79. Much lower than last night but still higher than the EP recommended. I don't have anything to use in emergencies and will consult my GP tomorrow, but does anyone know or experience such high blood pressure please and is there any way to bring it down?
