TOPIC: blood pressure

blood pressure 7 months 4 weeks ago #1458

I inclined my bed about three weeks ago. Amazingly, it almost entirely cleared my varicose veins. I wonder if anyone has experienced improvement in hypertension. I have not seen many testimonies on this issue and Andrew mentioned that it could go either way which is a little ambiguous.

My Experience

Over the spring of 2017, I was waking up three to four times a night with a serious need to urinate. Getting out of bed made me incredibly lightheaded. I would stagger to the bathroom, ramming my shoulder into the door frame most every time. I was also seeing a cardiologist. The cardiologist recommended an inclined pillow or an inclined bed and said it would help slow my kidney function and decrease my morning lightheadedness. I chose the inclined pillow. It seemed easier and I had no idea how I would raise my bed without it falling apart. The pillow helped a bit with my morning lightheadedness, but not with the frequent urination. Some effects were probably lost because I would slide down the pillow at night or stop using it because it was uncomfortable.

In October of 2017, I saw another cardiologist who specialized in POTS. She told me I needed to actually put the whole bed on an incline. With a Google search at home, I learned about “inclined bed therapy” and finally understood how to incline my bed. Since then, I’ve only been going to the bathroom a maximum of once per night, and usually very close to the morning time. I also find it easier to get out of bed without feeling lightheaded. By easier, I mean it takes less time for my symptoms to fade and me to be ready to get out of the bed.
