Hi I had a cardio stress test the other day and of course they don't say any thing - but my bp always runs low (95/60) but 5 mins into the treadmill test my bp shot up to 189/110. Is it suppose to do that?

I couldn't breathe at all through the mask I wanted to quit they kept telling me just one more minute I did quit at 7 mins I had enough.

No.

Blood pressure (as well as heart rate) should rise gradually/accordingly to the intensity of the activity/exercise.

Best of luck down the road of life.
