when I sit up my blood pressure goes up, when I stand it goes up a lot more. Lying the bottom is 77, sitting 94, standing 98-11

Also, my pulse goes way up.  Lying 77, which is high for me, 88 sitting, 108 standing.  Currently I'm taking lovanox and coumadin for a blood clot in my leg.

Dear blittle,

I have the same problem, whether I take BO med or not. Please post it here if you have found the reason and the corrective measures if any.


PS :My laying postion BP and pulse are perfect. In sit up the diastolic shoot up from the belo 80 in laying to 8-99 range. Sytolic changes very little.  Waiting a while so that the body adjusts to sitting position does not make much difference. I have tried to find an explanation to no evail.

I too have this problem.  My BP spikes whenever it seems to want to for no particular reason.  I have had a minor stroke and partial seizure within one week in April.  Yesterday at work, I set a personal record of 175/105.  I have had many blood tests, I'm on meds (not working), I've had 4 MRI's (2 brain & 2 spine), ekg, eeg, 24hr eeg, heart echo, arterial ultrasound with nothing to be found and nobody cant tell me what's wrong.

This morning after getting out of bed, b was 126/84 (my norm), by the time a got to work (new job), it was up to 148/101....again for no particular reason I can think of.  It's scary.  I'm back home, have a stack of medical bills (still waiting on all the different lab bills) I may not have a job next week AND STILL, nobody knows what's wrong with me.

Seeing a cardiologist next Monday (more bills).  I can't just lay down for the rest of my life.  If I find any info in the coming days, I will post it for your benefit.
