blood pressure

Postby sujanmajhi » Tue Mar 23, 2010 7:23 am

Why do our blood pressures/heart rate rise when we lay down? I usually have a blood pressure of 96/? or under 120 most of the time. I wanna know why it is when I or other people lay down have their pressure go up. I would think that laying down would lessen the number because its calming to lay down. I just don't understand why our blood pressure rises when we lay down.

it only rises at the instant you lay down, it should go back down after some time.
