I've never been diagnosed with high blood pressure. Aldosterone can cause high blood pressure by influencing the amount of fluid in your circulatory system and by acting as a vasoconstrictor. It's interesting that your blood pressure goes up at night before you go to bed as aldosterone has a circadian rhythm and it's peak activity in normal folks starts at night when you go to sleep. Maybe yours gets an early start...or maybe you are staying up too late and sleep walking.
If you give eplerenone a shot, we'll make a whole two person "study!"
