So having come off the blood pressure tablets 2 weeks ago I had my check up today....and its 126/96 I have to take my bp every day now and e mail it to my GP. I may be referred to the hospital The thing is, he looked up my blood pressure readings over the last 3 years and says my diastolic blood pressure seems dangerously erratic. It seems that my pregnancy and labour could have uncovered a serious problem that I have had for ages. He also said that the only time my blood pressure has been stable was while I was pregnant, although he said he has concerns about my midwife he seems to think that she kept recording the wrong bp to avoid having to deal wth a problem. (it would have been clearer as I never really had it done regularly before)(remember this is the woman who when my glucose load test came back at over 10 took 5 weeks to reffer me!) So all in all, a pretty piss poor show all round. I'm really annoyed- in fact I'm absolutely fuming. I knew that midwife was a complete waste of space.
