My blood pressure got up to 238/138 about 6 yrs. ago when I started having high blood pressure. Always before that it ran like 96/72; anyway it was usually low. In the past week it has run anywhere from 177/135 with a heart rate of 130 to 115/86. Anyone else have this fluctuation? I am currently on Nifedipine, Lisinopril, Chlorthalid, Lopressor, and Catapres when the upper number is over 150. I have an appt. with a cardiologist Nov.27th to try to find out what is going on. Any one out there have these problems? My grandmother had uncontrollable blood pressure and died when she was 54 because it shut down her kidneys. Of course that was back in the 50's but it scares me to death because I also have Lupus.
