Brief Answer:
it is a normal reading, which is good

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

This blood pressure would be considered a normal blood pressure. Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80 mmHg.

Low blood pressure is less than 90/60 though some persons have blood pressures less slightly than this normally.

Maintaining a normal blood pressure is part of management of an aneurysm, so this normal blood pressure reading is good.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

I have a problem that is not resolving. I have right eye ptososis, strabismus, the eye no longer moves to the left and lately constant weeping/tearing from the eye. In the cavernous sinus, I have greater ectasia on the right vs left carotid on MRI and a vascular blush on a cerebral angiogram, suggestive of inflammation, tumor or fistula. Currently, there is no identified aneurysm, no inflammation or infection in CSF or blood, no identified fistula, and no tumor on MRI. High dose steroids are not resolving the problem. What other things could be assessed/examined?

Dear Dr. Keerthi. I have been having weird spells in my brain for almost 5yrs. now. I had MRI s with and without contrast that showed nothing. I had an EEG performed for 48 hrs. and was told I have left frontal lobe seizures. My Dr. wanted me to have more extensive tests done at the Cleveland Clinic hospital last week. I had another MRI and that detected 2 aneurysms. One on each side of the brain. Then I also had a video EEG done. During my stay of a week, I did not have any of these spells while on the EEG. However, the Dr. said she seen what they call sharps on the left frontal lobe and said I am epileptic. Could these spells be caused by the aneurysms and would the sharps shown up on the EEG really be epilepsy?
