(for a 88 year old man who has Torus Palatinus, Hypertension)
My blood pressure seems to rise when cool air passes over my Torus Palatinus.
If I sit in a room with air conditioning, my BP rises. At night I sleep with the heat on to keep the room warm. Otherwise, my BP rises extremely high - 177/100. Has anyone else experienced this?
