Blood pressure higher when sitting.

Q: When sitting my blood pressure is 150/94 in that range and pulse rate 90 plus. Then if I stand 15 minutes or longer my blood pressure drops. It’s been 90/50, 100/60 and pulse rate will be 98 and higher. What could be happening?

A: It sounds like your heart is having trouble maintaining your blood pressure in an upright position. This may be due to medicines you are taking or could be a sign of a problem. Make an appointment to see your doctor.
