Dangers of hypertension stage 2

Hypertension means that the heart has to work hard too to ensure a supply of the entire tissue in the body. The blood pressure increases because more blood must be pumped into the body, or because an increased resistance of the arterial walls is present. As part of the heart muscle grows due to this continuous load on and on and therefore needs more oxygen. Then step sequelae such as arteriosclerosis (vascular calcification) on the oxygen required is only supplied insufficient. Therefore, it is considered a normal blood pressure at an early stage in order to stabilize their own life expectancy to the maximum.

    • Dee 146/93 is borderline high blood pressure. Your GP might put you on a blood pressure med after keeping an eye on your BP. I’m prescribed 10mg Lisinopril to lower my BP of 170/91.

  29. Hi. Out of nowhere (my usual bp is 122/68-ish), my bp for the last 4 days has been crazy high.
    I got tired of getting up and checking it and taking extra lisinopril, so at 8 am this morning, it was 212/117 pulse 74.
    Throughout the day, I’ve taken 70 mg of lisinopril.
    Its brought it down to all of 174/102.
    I have a Dr’s appointment on Monday, and I’m just trying to live so that I can make it.

  30. I have chronic mesenteric ischemia and I’m symptomatic meaning I’m in the latter stage of disease.
    At any given time, and I’m on bp meds, I’m 200/100. Hours later I could very well have 80/65. Can’t get it right!

  31. I was on Losartan for some time, but have been sick with the flu for the past few days. I know that can raise BP, but my high values scared me. I checked it after I woke up in the middle of the night yesterday because of a drumming sound in my ears. It was my heart pounding like crazy. I took one of my husband’s Lisinopril and it take down quickly. I left a message for my doctor to see if I could switch. Since those are taken in the morning, I didn’t take one last night and just woke up again from the pounding noise. My reading was 186/107. It scared me. I took another Lisinopril.

  32. IDK
    I am a 52 and overweight. I lost my husband unexpectedly 6 months ago who was my 19 year companion. Two weeks ago I had a terrible sinus infection. Ever since I have been experiencing pain in my sternum, I can feel my heart beating and can not sleep well. I had two bp readings from the Doctors and they seemed to be concerned. This morning my bp was 143/105….I can not sleep. Should I go to the ER?!

  33. BP 179/98 p.99 I’m on meds (atoravistatin/chlorthalidone?) My question is I sweat profusely anytime I eat or drink anything hot. I can’t seem to find any answers… any comments/help please…

  34. I currently take Ramipril, amplodipine and indapamide for stage 2 Hypertension.
    BP slightly raised again. Anyone any ideas

  35. Hi,,,,I have been up and down for a year now. Resting is 130/80 and when I get active can go anywhere from 150/90 to 170/90.
