Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Usually high blood pressure has no symptoms at all.
As such, I high BP should not make you tired.
Oh well...i was looking for a CAUSE
If, however, you are worried that your BP may be too high, you can check it at home with a BP machine, or at many walmarts and drug stores for free.
Tons of things can make you tired but high BP is usually not one of them :)
I have a BP machine-so far, w/o my meds it was around 126/80
Then tonight it was 143!
that BP value is just fine. No reason to think it might be causing you any problems.
So i tho't mebbe it was in some way related, even tho' i know high BP is "The Silent Killer..."
143 is a bit high, but not an emergency in a person with a history of high bp. Plus, readings vary from moment to moment and a milidly high reading here and there is nothing to be too concerned about.
I wouldn't go out and max out your credit cards hoping you won't be around to have to pay them off with BP reading like those :)
Thanks for requesting me ;)
I'm still gonna take it again before bed...
Get some good sleep.....
and we can finish the other thread later.

OK-Bye for now!
It is a very rewarding speciality.
Thanx for your reassurance.
BP was 117/70 when i went to bed last night-false alarm, i guess--'had the slleve of the 2 shirts i was wearing up and they must have caused a false positive high reading.
On the DOWNSIDE, my eight it going up-i am quite concerned.
My husband says it is bec we have been eating out a LOT lately, and ALL food in restaurants is salty...
I am SO glad you are my Go-To Guy....a sense of humor is very important to me.
I plan to weigh in again in about a week, as once again we are scheduled for a boatloada dinners out....wherein i will plan for leftovers....
But ya, i DID walk for 40mins. yesterday, and hope to keep that up, as my hip etc. feels a LOT better when i MOVE (OR stand, oddly enough--surprises every day!!!!). 'Am still on the Voltaren;'plan to use it 'til my mid-March Surgeon app't.....perhaps THAT is making me retain water?
As you can see, i am desperately searching for a Fall Guy!!
We've actually joined a local pool, because it was virtually the ONLY thing i was ABLE to do before i needed my replacement(but even THAT was tough: getting OUT was sheer MURDER!)....However, w/17 degrees out, i am loath to going there, bec we can only go at night, it being in a school...
So we joined a fitness club, where i can get on a treadmill....i don't LOVE it; it is boring, but i bring my own music along...i am going to try to get back to THAT a bit more regularly...Honestly, and i am not excusing it, it is VERY hard to go out when it is so COLD-plus i have been experiencing a LOT of fatigue daily, for some unknown reason-which usually responds well to:guess WHAT??? ACTIVITY!
Whod'a thunk THAT??
Just got back from walking on treadmill....'am REALLY trying to do all you suggest!!
Where do you live-Antarctica?? No, seriously, i assume it is WI, as you like the Packers...
How do you stay WARM?????
