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?
