I have high blood pressure,and it sucks because I have to take medication that I can not stand,which is worse because I can not swallow a pill because of my gag reflex,and I end up throwing it back up,but I have never heard about going to sleep early,on the contrary, me and my fiance stay up all night which I think helps because I am less stressed at night,and stress is what I think a major factor when it comes to high blood pressure.

Yeah that could be why,because if you work too hard or overwork yourself it causes stress,and stress will cause your blood pressure to be higher,so if he tries to stay less stress he should be happier and healthier, have a great day,good luck in your life,and Happy Posting.

i think its time to modify lifestyle, diet, exercise and activity.... sure it advisable to sleep early and have enough number of sleeping hours because you will sure get stress if you lack of sleep and stress is also a contributing factor to hypertension... stay healthy my friend and keep safe.... live, laugh and love...... GODBLESS.....

Well lately when I have fever and consulted a doctor. he took by BP and he said that my BP was slightly high since my diastolic was above the normal rage or 80. I was given a medication for a couple of weeks and then advised to return to him for checkup. I really didn't feel anything that my blood pressure was slowly rising up. I think the best way is really to have your BP checked by a doctor or nurse to be sure about it. Also Sleeping early does help but if your BP is already elevated it will not help but a medication would.

I do have high b.p. and i take medication for it. Going to bed early isn't going to help reduce your b.p.

I have high blood pressure. It is really simple to treat. Basically, you can take medication daily and watch what you eat. I haven't heard of going to sleep early as a help, but it could be. It isn't a difficult thing to treat in most cases, but you need to know about it so you can get it under control.
