Blood Pressure Question [View all]

I've been cleaning house during spring break and I found all these little PostIt notes with blood pressure readings I'd taken of myself, so I decided to put them on a chart. My blood pressure was found to be high last September and my doc put me on the smallest dosage of diuretic there is (12.5 mg). I take this once a day.

My blood pressure is now in the normal range.

As a result of doing the chart, I found something interesting but I don't know what it means. Maybe one of you can give me some ideas.

I had data for a five-month period and I put the figures on a table. This is when I saw that my blood pressure was high on the third week of each month. This would happen around the 20 or the 23.

I did a search under "blood pressure cycle" but I couldn't find anything.

I was wondering if the moon had anything to do with it, but I don't think so. One might think blood pressure would be higher during the full moon, but a moon phases chart didn't support that hypothesis.

I'm curious. Any ideas?
