Hi everyone,

my blood pressure is also high and the doctor said that this is a likely stemming back to my emphysema because it is causing my heart to work harder, increasing the high blood pressure.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Did blood pressure medication help? I would like to get this under control! My doctor was not too helpful.

Thank you.

I developed high blood pressure after my diagnosis with COPD... I was never told there was a relationship between the two. But I do have both and treat both.

How high is your blood pressure? It seems odd your doctor would have dismissed your concerns.
