Has anyone else noticed a significant change in their diastolic (lower) reading several months after an ablation? I was a bit surprised to see that my reading has changed from 73 to 86 on average readings. I'm not sure anything else has changed which may have caused this? I will talk to my Dr about this, seems uncomfortably close to the "90" figure. I note that my heart rate has gone up from previous low 50's to around 65-70. But I understand this is common. I've never been quite sure of the relationship between heart rate and blood pressure, i.e. will a higher heart rate naturally increase your BP? I don't think it should?
