I’ve heard that polythemia can harm normal circulation. What problems can it cause and how can it be treated? How does it affect blood pressure? I’ve started have problems with high blood pressure and sometimes orthostatic bp. I’m 47 years old female. I haven’t checked my blood count lately.

Polythemia cause increased blood viscosity. That may lead to decreased blood flow. It’s not that simple to say how it affects blood pressure. It depends on your cardiac output and condition of your blood vessels. But as I think, it’s not the blood pressure the only thing you should think about if you talk about polythemia. I would suggest you to check your blood count.
