Wife is 72, had a heart catheter done back in May, has three small blockages, none over 40 % so they are treating with medicine, off and on she has erratic BP, some times its normal, sometimes will run up to 190/124, then maybe an hour later back to normal, went to ER couple days ago, EKG, xray and blood tests were all normal, sent home saying they were not sure what was causing this erratic BP, wonder if anyone here has run into this type of problem, she does take BP meds, and a nitro when needed, has pressure feeling in chest at times, no signs like a heart attack.....thanks all

how are the kidneys? kidneys regulate blood pressure. and stress levels / anxiety cause it to be erratic. welcome and keep strong. any new or over the counter meds? check with ya pharmacist. some doctors are not quite knowledgeable on med interactions. miy bp is up n down too. i use nitro too and bp tablets. temperature regulation is important, as is hydration-water. not enough water will impact ya kidneys and bp will play up. hope i have helped a little.
