background

I began my menopause in 2011. It hasn't been to bad or as bad as some stuff I have read but at the same time I was diagnosed with that I acquired slightly elevated Blood Pressure and had to go on a low dose of medication. After a year I ask the doctor to take me off, so he did. I was good for about 9 months and then it spiked again. Then after being back on them for about five months it reached the next stage, I guess and they increased the medication. I have read alot regarding this and feel there is a connection between Menopause and High Blood Pressure. I am 51, not over weight, eat a good diet and exercise moderately. Can you shed and light to this, has anyone else experienced the same thing?
