I mentioned something like this before here but maybe getting places - not fully yet though.
Again I am Cars Husband writing here - she is currently on Haemodialysis in hospital right now - three times a week. We have been into A&E for the last few days. From their further tests. Her BP has been up around the 200’s for the last two months and with it severe headaches. Finally light at end of tunnel yesterday - after a night in hospital [ thursday night ] they switched BP meds and introduced a Beta Blocker. At 6:30am friday morning they tested her BP - A perfect 140 over 90 for the first time in ages.
All was fine yesterday, all was fine today initially when she went on dialysis. But she texted me about an hour in to say her BP was back up to 180. So luckily the consultant is there. They are going to try take more fluid off, they reckon she may be ‘hiding’ it. She is 36 years old. We were told that it is easier to see fluid retention in older patients.
So - we thought it was licked, but no. Just writting this here to see if anyone else has had similar issues in the past and possible resolutions / causes.
I should say she has been trying for PD with a tenchoff recently added, the first one failed as it leaked, the new one added about 6 weeks ago.
Anyways, any info appreciated,
EDIT: Car got home, Bp was down to 157 when leaving Dialysis, headache subsiding. From this vantage point it seems something in Haemodialysis is causing the BP to go up, strange.
