Saw my cardiologist and he told me "I run hot". Apparently he feels my BP issues are genetic and I tend to run high numbers. I did a treadmill stress test and my bp went up to 201/108. I am currently on lisinpril 10/12.5 now he wants me on bystolic 5mg but agreed to allow me to start on 2.5.

I hope he is right about this, because in the morning my BP is 110/94 and I feel horrible. Muscles ache, out of breath. My sitting BP is normal, however apparently with activity it goes nuts. Even upon staing they get 150/108. This morninfs bp has betwen 108/90 - 113/82. I am afraid the cardio is not looking deep enough into my BP issues.

Has anyone else been on bystolic?

that high diastolic number is definitely something that should be lowered. Damn genes. It's true doctors do in my opinion an inadequate job when it comes to managing chronic issues. Too much of a 'wait until it gets worse' attitude combined with using drugs to cure problems as a first line solution instead of prevention.
