Good afternoon everyone,
Just wondering if anyone else has experienced a change (increase, in this case) in their blood pressure with their disease, RA or PSA related? I'm not on any medicines, as the doctors are still unwilling to diagnose me without anymore clear symptoms manifesting, so that's not a cause. Normally, I was running 110-120 / 65-75. The past three doctor visits, i've been consistently at or around 135/75-80, and last night on a machine I had a quick scare when it hit 147/76 (i redid it immediately afterwards and it went to 135/74). Now, I've been incredibly anxious about all of this since the symptoms began to manifest, which I know will have caused at least a minor jump, but my family history is riddled with heart attacks at ages that I'm nearing all too rapidly. Every male on my Grandmother's side had dealt with heart attack. Two passed from them, the others lived, but their attacks were at a young age. I'm scared now that this is going to cause a similar happening.
