Sandi K Posted March 3, 2011 Share Posted March 3, 2011 Hi everyone, Wondering if blood pressure is considered a cause for an SAH or is it just something to be monitored after an SAH so as not to stress the body systems further? Does everyone who has an SAH have high blood pressure generally? I was asked to monitor my BP for a few weeks after my PM-NASAH and it would be high sometimes but generally it was really good. I was fitted with a 24 hour holster and wore it while I had returned to work. It was a very stressful time, I wasn't feeling well, my brain was not working, and my boss had an important meeting that day in which I had to provide some information which we didn't have ready yet. Very stressful but the BP report came back ok. In fact the BP report said it was good. However, my GP said the neurologist might want my BP lower than the general 'normal' because I've had a brain bleed. Is this a 'what comes first, the chicken or the egg' question? Sandi K.
