My doctor changed my blood pressure meds two days ago. I was on metoprolol. My blood pressure went up recently. He put me on propranolol 40 mgs. Today my BP was 134/93. Is that bad? Since I've had this dd my blood pressure and thyroid went in the dumper. The one concern I have with propranolol is the fact that it makes your hands and feet cold. So that means that I'll have poor circulation from this medication? I've been worried about my circulation for awhile now because this happened with the other BP med. Should I be concerned about this? Also, after this new medication gets in my system do you think my BP will go down some? Since January I've been fanatical about taking my BP and get panic attacks worrying about it. The doctor told my husband to hide the BP cuff from me. But, that makes me worry because I don't want to get a heart attack or a stroke. I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't. Please advise me before I go completely crazy. Thank you Carol Oh I read your bio. It was really interesting.
