Arteries carry blood from the heart to all parts of
your body. Blood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the
walls of the arteries. When the heart beats, it pumps out blood into the
arteries. Our blood pressure is at its highest when our heart beats
while pumping the blood. This type of pressure is called systolic
pressure. Whereas, it is the diastolic pressure when the heart is at
rest that is between beats as blood pressure falls. To know more blood
pressure information, read The
Basics Of High Blood Pressure.
High blood pressure is a condition when your blood pressure goes above the normal
blood pressure levels that is 120/80 mmHg. Hypertension can cause
complications related to the heart, kidney, bones, and brain.
The common symptoms of high blood pressure are headaches, dizziness, blurred
vision, low libido or lack of sexual desire, digestive upsets and many
more. In most of the cases, the cause is unknown and this type of
hypertension is called primary hypertension and when the causes of high
blood pressure are known then one is termed as secondary hypertension.
Normally, lying down calmly may lower your blood pressure but ironically, people
with postural hypotension due to neurological disorders usually have
higher blood pressure when lying down. They even feel higher blood
pressure when lying down during sleep.
Normally, people search for the reason as to why they have higher blood pressure when lying down
but no relevant answer generally turns up. The best ways to lower blood
pressure or reduce your blood pressure is to adopt healthy life style
along with proper high blood pressure medication. Buy high blood
pressure monitor to check your blood pressure regularly and maintain
blood pressure charts to keep it under control.
