I have chronic high blood pressure. I've had it since I was 17 been on meds since 19. I had pre-e with my first (totally the pits) and I am hoping to avoid it this time. I have already been switched to Lebatelol (I'm sure that is spelled wrong). Anyway, for me I don't need the meds right now! My BP is running low to normal. I think that might be part of why I feel so tired. The other night at work I was dizzy and stumbling, checked my BP and it was 106/70, really low for me and without meds. I don't know how to handle being on this end . . . I just try to keep my fluids up. I agree that having a BP cuff at home is a good idea, plus those drug store machines aren't too reliable . . . kids playing with them and all. I hope it was a fluke and you won't have problems. Good luck!
