Hello Mashar Fahmi, Thank you for the question.
What was your blood pressure before and after you had a stroke? Do you take medication regularly after you have had a stroke? Is the drug you are taking one of which is high blood pressure medication? Have you taken blood pressure measurements using the right tools and methods?
Blood pressure measurement should be done by experienced medical personnel. Measuring blood pressure should also be done when a person is at rest, not during activities and not immediately after doing activities. In general, someone who is going to take blood pressure measurements must rest first after doing an activity so that blood pressure measurements remain accurate. You need to know, human blood pressure can be affected by age, when the examination was carried out, the position of the body when the examination was carried out, activity, stress levels, health conditions, use of inappropriate equipment.
If you take this measurement at home and it remains high, please consult an internal medicine specialist / cardiologist to make sure that this blood pressure measurement is accurate. If your blood pressure is indeed high (hypertension), the doctor will carry out further tests on you after asking about some of the complaints you are experiencing. The doctor will determine the next treatment for you after examining you. You should not underestimate the results of this examination and immediately see a doctor because high blood pressure is a risk factor for the occurrence of several diseases such as heart attack, coronary heart disease, stroke, kidney disease. High blood pressure should be treated immediately to prevent further health complications.
In addition, you are also advised to:
limiting consumption of salty and fatty foods
exercise regularly according to your ability
maintain ideal body weight
manage stress well
consume drugs regularly according to doctor's recommendations
Hope this information helps you.
