Waking pain

Q: I am 50 years old and my BP has always run a little high, 140/90 even when I was in marathon condition. But I notice it drops to as low as 90/60 when I take it lying down immediately as I wake. I often awake in pain, a whole body ache, headache, pain and tingling in my hands and feet. I no longer have restorative sleeps and have developed chronic fatigue. Do you think this lowering of my BP is an issue?

A: Based on all of your symptoms, it would be wise to make an appointment with a physician for a complete evaluation. Waking pain is not normal and trouble getting enough sleep should not be ignored. In fact, lack of sleep can contribute to high blood pressure.
