Q: Unexplained extremely high blood pressure spike on young adult.

My sister is a healthy 30 year old mother of a 6 month son. Before she got married and have a baby, she would have unexplained blood pressure spikes.   She used to smoke a lot and then stopped when she met my now brother in law. She has been smoke free for the past 3 years. After she stopped smoking, her BP pressure would go from 130/100 to 180/110, she was given beta blockers but stopped when she got pregnant. She gave birth 3 months early and now my nephew is 6 months, and her blood pressure is going nuts again. taken today July 2nd:

8:00 am124/99
8:05 am131/101
8:10 am131/93
2:00 pm138/97
8:00 pm128/88

Please help us, we've been to experts in the Philippines, Dubai, and London and no one seems to know what is going on.ty

Hi Xnandres:


It sounds like your sister-in-law has been a mystery, unfortunately. I'm guessing she has had several tests ran since she has seen several doctors.

Here is an article that may be helpful, discussing Lesser Known Causes of High Blood Pressure.


Good luck, I hope they find out what is going on,

Tara, RN
