My blood pressure is persistently high and I have a very fast heartbeat. I think this has only been the case since I was diagnosed but my drs haven't seemed too bothered by it until this week when I received a copy of a letter from my Consultant to my GP suggesting he checks my blood pressure more regularly and starts me on anti-hypertensive meds. I'm just wondering if it is normal or maybe a side effect of medication? I am aware it may be possible it is because of weight gained because of pred but It was a problem before I gained the weight also.
