NateJ, Have you had your Vitamin D checked?? I've had issues where my BP med was increased in late winter & cut back in late summer... I recently had a stress test that zeroed in on an issue.. I'm now taking the right meds and less of them with extra Vitamin D... I'm feeling quite a bit better each week...

My blood pressure did go up but since it was so extremely low before diagnosis it is AFAIK still in normal ranges.

Mine has been high since I went off gluten in April. I've had full blood work up, an EKG, and a echo stress test, all came back normal. I'm currently wearing a heart monitor, get that off today.
High BP and some minor chest pain. The chest pain has been better the past two days but my BP has not
gone below 130/90 for over 2 months now.
I feel ok, no stomach issues except unknowingly glutening myself.
Just wondered if anyone else saw this issue. I'm only 35 and my diet is pretty good.

Have you had blood work for vit and mineral levels? Are you eating salty foods? Does this run in your family? What other symptoms are you having, if any?

Stress? My husband has "white coat syndrome", sometimes when just THINKING of a white coat. Every time his bp is taken at a medical facility it's high. When he takes it at home (first thing in the morning, in a quiet place) it's normal.

Drives both of us nuts because he won't go to a doctor about ANYTHING because they take his bp and get obsessed...

Interesting... yes, mine went up significantly. My anxiety levels increased too, by the way.

Back when I was a runner I had a low BP & pulse plus less anxiety (or so it seemed).

I think the BP thing might be due to low vitamin B12 levels, which I plan to have checked next week.

I don't know if this helps at all but I will share what happened to me. Perhaps not your situation. I am 48, never had high blood pressure ever in my life, if anything it bordered low. I went on 3 month liver cleanse to speed up my metabolism. That sped up my heart like nuts. First 2 months I was fine but then it hit me overnight and ended up in ER with chest pains, blood pressure was 146 over 90. At that time docs had no clue what was going on. I went thru all the tests. Finally this was linked to an herb, doc said it was much like drinking those energy drinks and that because herbal supplements are not regulated by the FDA they many times have too much and will cause the heart problems. While my body was in the detox stage of this my blood pressure stayed high. It wasn't until I passed the detox stage and I started supplementing that my blood pressure came down. There had been alot happen during this time, and I too thought I was having white coat syndrome.

I don't take any supplements or 'herbs', I've always had freakishly high metabolism. Actually was in a clinical study years ago for it. Certain painkillers and anesthetics don't work on me because my metabolism runs them out. Like whatever they use at the dentist and anything local.
I'm 35, and yes it runs in my family. My Dr. insisted on all the tests before BP meds because of my history and symptoms.
Chest pains is what concerns me the most. Radiates into my left arm at times. She told me to take tylenol?

That would concern me too. Are docs thinking of putting on prescription meds?

My primary mentioned it, but hasn't done it yet. She scheduled these tests, then had me set a follow up for 6 weeks.
Then her nurse called and said that I should see a cardiologist (sp?) so I'm waiting for someone to call about that.

Best to you with this. It would be nice if you could still be going thru a withdrawl stage but 6/7 months out, it is probabaly not the case. I know you said your vits levels are fine. Are you having any other symptoms besides high blood pressure and chest pains? For me, I really think it was my vit d supplementing that helped bring down my BP. My BP stayed high for several months. I was doing the no salt thing and trying to get more exercise. I would not say I am overweight. I thought maybe it was my back pain that was causing it or that I was stressed from being thru so much with the detox. I was really trying to work and concentrate on relaxing and did what I could to stay out of the line of stressful situations. Maybe that helped and maybe it didn't. I started supplementing in June, this is 5 months after my ER trip and that's when my blood pressure came down and went back into normal range.

I think for me it was the vit d that made the difference. It would be something to try before going on heart meds. As long as your calcium levels are not above normal you can take 5000 IU d daily. http://highbloodpres...a/vitamin-d.htm
