I am having problems with fluctuation blood pressure on and off for the past 2 years since being diagnosed with Lyme Disease, I wonder if anyone has any info where this may be Lyme Disease related, my pressure returns to normal for a few months and it shoots up again, I was on two blood pressure meds that kept it stable till my pressure started going very low and  stopped, now its shooting up again ,on and off up to 170/100

I have the same problem. The doctor who was treating me for CFIDS for the past few years did not put me on medication because it's not consistently high and fluctates a lot although I think it's high more often than low/normal. Curious to see what others say.

I have the same problem. Every doc I see wants me on medication but I refuse. Mine can go as high as 170/112 and will eventually come down. I wont take the meds because it is not consistent. I do believe it is Lyme related, not really sure what exactly causes it to happen. I would love to know.

I have the opposite problem. My blood pressure drops too low, and I get very lightheaded. I've almost blacked out numerous times. I never had a problem before getting Lyme. I'm not sure how it affects the blood pressure.
