High blood pressure/fast heartbeat

July 9, 2006 at 7:19 am

Hi–yes GBS can affect BP and heart rate. I needed ramipril while in hospital as well as a low dose (5mg daily) for a month or so after getting back home. The heart rate stayed high(90-100 or so) for a couple of months but slowly returned to normal, in fact both BP and heart rate eventually dropped to what I consider below normal for myself. BP was high normal before GBS and now is normal. I don’t know if that’s good or bad but I’m more comfortable mentally with a BP on the lower end of normal.
