25-year-old female with moderately high blood pressure and rather high pulse rate

25-year-old female with moderately high blood pressure and rather high pulse rate - should I be concerned? I have a lower-management job in a small retail corp, and the season isn t quite over yet. I smoke one cigarette a day, half on the way to work and half on the way back from break. I had a problem with arrhythmia and low blood pressure as a teen, so I became paranoid and began checking my BP using a home monitor I ve checked against my mother s (a nurse) - both parents have high BP. It s the distance between the numbers that is actually concerning me, but I don t know if that s what I should be worried about. My sleep tends to be short and erratic. And my diet is generally fast food. I m just trying to figure out whether it s my habits or something else.

I am a 48 year old female and stopped in my local pharmacy to check my BP and pulse........my doctor had advised I should do this a few times per month after giving a high reading at the doctor s office a 2 months ago. I have always had thru my life a reading of 110 over 70 until a few months ago. Yesterday it was 134/50 with a pulse rate of 103. I have not felt right for a few months now. A Nuclear Stress test and ches x-ray were good but I still feel there is something wrong. What should I do and what could be going on. I m am afraid of stroke or heart attack at this point. Thank you for your time.

I have had a problem with my heart beat rate changing from laying down at about 70 to 80 bpm, then sitting 90 to 120 or so, then to standing around 146 to 165 and my monitor says EE for error if higher at times. I have been sick with many other symptoms, blurry vision off and on, no appetite, Major Depressive Disorder, Migraines. While preparing medical records I have for an attorney for social security, I noted one doctor had a CT scan taken in 2005 and it said I have a posterior fossa arachnoid cyst, but he didn t think it was anything important. I did some research and found several articles that lead me to believe this may very well be what is causing my problems.... I had also be reviewing cases of Neural Mediated Hypotension which I seem to have quite a few of the same symptoms as some of the writers. Could this cyst being over the nerve area leaving the brain cause me to have Neural Mediated Hypotension?

My 16 year old daughter fainted yesterday at school about 30 minutes after taking Bayer asprin. Today, before giving blood at her school blood drive, a nurse checked her blood pressure and it was 90/62 (they let her give blood anyway). After giving blood, she felt very weak and could hardly stand up. Could her fainting be from the asprin or could it be a side effect of her low blood pressure?
