My blood pressure seems HIGHER when sleeping on CPAP?
#11
RE: My blood pressure seems HIGHER when sleeping on CPAP?
Because the doctor doesn't understand that an overloaded liver will close its inlet valves and thus increase blood pressure markedly.
Because the doctor doesn't know how much and what type of load each toxic chemical "medication" does.
Because the doctor is paid by the government and could literally not care less if I am healthy or not.
Because the doctor resents me hugely for my knowledge that she lacks instead of working with me, out of the hyper-superiority illusion of those of her trade.

Your help sorting through this is very appreciated. Thank you.


Horrux,

According to the numbers you have here, you are using an S9 APAP/CPAP AutoSet.

As others have asked, download the free SleepyHead software.  Be sure you have an SD card in your machine.  Then follow the links in my signature line for guidance on organizing and posting your data here.  

Someone will take a look at it and advise if that's what you would like.  


If you don't have a clinical manual for your machine, you can get one here, link at top of page.


Also, you seem to have a lot of heath problems, and as stated prior, high BP numbers often reflect an underlying health issue.  Find a doctor that will listen to your concerns.

You need a different doctor or attitude.  Your choice.  Get %Sleepyhead and let's talk about sleep therapy. We can't help you with your tin foil approach to medicine.

I am at wits' ends here...

My blood pressure is getting sky high (175/125) and I don't know what to do... The doc's meds aren't helping much at all!!!!

Do you know of other cases? What kinds of strategies were used for resolving them?

Thanks

So, i know you brushed this off going on about the government and doctors, but for anyone else reading...

If your BP reaches these numbers, you don't need to see your doctor.. you need to see your ER.  This is within the range (specifically, diastolic above 120) to be clinically hypertensive crisis, and may require immediate treatment to avoid stroke or other organ damage (urgency or emergency would be determined at the ER). The cause, be it physical or psychological (anxiety is a b**ch) needs to be identified and steps take to ensure no lasting harm. I know lots of people (myself included) hate going to the doctor, but this really is one of those things you need to take  seriously..
