When I consumed all of that alcohol on Saturday though, my blood pressure took a sudden plunge all the way down to 112/62 which is only a couple of points away from being a hypotension reading (one which is below the healthy range and therefore, considered ro be too low). This morning, my blood pressure then shot up all the way to 155/85 which is higher than at any time since I stopped that latest experiment with coming off blood pressure tablets.
Because of this, I would like to pose this question to Carorees (the forum's main expert on blood pressure issues) or anyone else who can shed some light on this subject. The observations that I have seen is that after a couple of days after taking too much alcohol, the blood pressure does go up which is in line with what the experts in the media have always said about the effects of alcohol on blood pressure.
However, I was wondering if it is also common to get such a large and rapid temporary drop in blood pressure before that happens, or whether my situation is a one off one in that regard. If such a drop in blood pressure on a temporary basis is common after a large intake of alcohol, it would be good to know a bit about the science behind that (perhaps someone could send some links to some scientific studies for that) so that I have a better understanding of what actually happened during that period.
