    Nurse/anyone........blood pressure fluctuations and nausea???

    Does anyone else get very nauseous when they have blood pressure fluctuations? Is that normal?? I get extremely nauseous.

    bcsimpsons,

    Normal with Autonomic Dysreflexia-Hyperreflexia.

    When your blood pressure goes up, does your heartrate go down?

    Actually, nausea and vomiting are rare reactions to autonomic dysreflexia. I have not seen this. While some people have a slow pulse with AD, many have a fast pulse so that does not determine if the high blood pressure is AD or not.

    It is common to have nausea and vomiting with a very low blood pressure (hypotension), esp. if the blood pressure drops suddenly.

    Mine always drops when I first get up and with that I'm always nauseated and anxious.Drinking water seems to help my bp to rise back to normal.

    I sometimes get nauseous and dizzy when I lift myself up out of the tub. It passes pretty quickly. My blood pressure is typically on the low end of normal.

    Although I have lowish blood pressure, and fainted in rehab, I didn't tend to feel sick. However, I know others in rehab did get nauseous with low blood pressure. One guy puked when he got in the standing frame.

    I have never felt nauseous with dysreflexia.

    KLD, yes the nausea is when my blood pressure drastically drops quickly. However I still am slightly sick to my stomach when it is elevated. By low I mean 70/40ish and high I am talking about 110/180ish.

    Please check that last number. It is physiologically impossible to have a blood pressure of 110/180. This would mean that your blood pressure is 110 when your heart is beating and 180 when it is at rest. This is called a negative pulse pressure and would result in no blood circulating in your body.

    Since your injury is so low, I assume you are not having AD. It sounds like you have hypertension, which can be essential hypertension or caused by a medical problem such as an adrenal tumor. You need to see a good cardiologist and get this under control. You are at risk of stroke, heart damage, renal damage and eye damage with uncontrolled high blood pressures such as this.
