Hi , I have stage 3 lupus nephritis , had this for over 15 years always protein in my urine at checkups . My blood pressure is always high when I go for checkups but it isn't high when I check it at home or when the chemist check it , I do not believe I have high blood pressure but in 2015 I was put on ibersartan for high blood pressure and it also has reduced protein leak to just a trace it was always ++ and sometimes +++ . The thing is I now get light headed due to low blood pressure so I am not happy taking ibersartan , I also have heart beat problems which can be a side effect of ibersartan , I've stopped taking it which I know renal consultant won't be happy about but I don't want to take high blood pressure meds if it's making me have low blood pressure I was in hospital in march after fainting due to a vasovagal episode . Does anyone else get high blood pressure readings at their appointments yet its fine the rest of the time ? ( White coat syndrome ) I've had 24hr blood pressure tests over the years which all came back fine .
