What's your normal blood pressure?

My theory is that POIS is worse on low blood pressure, or even cause blood pressure. When I raise blood pressure I get less symptoms (at lest less headache).

Have you noticed if your POIS symptom is better when your blood pressure is higher (around 120/80)?

I haven't checked and I'm not sure it's ever been that high if it is I'll check.

My theory is that POIS is worse on low blood pressure, or even cause blood pressure. When I raise blood pressure I get less symptoms (at lest less headache).
I discovered years ago that in POIS acute phase, I have a low blood pressure ( hypotension), and managing that have helped a lot to relieve my symptoms.
However, since I have shared this on the forum 6 years ago, I have found other members who have high blood pressure during POIS.  This is another reason for me to think that there are more than one type of POIS.   However, it could be interesting to know what proportion of POIS sufferer shows hypotension when in POIS acute phase.
