If you are a healthy adult , 90/60 is considered to be normal. The first digit is called systolic and the second is called diastolic blood pressure.So your systolic blood pressure is 90 and your diastolic blood pressure is 60 mmHg. In adults a diastolic pressuire<85 mmHg and systolic pressure<130 mmHg indicates normal blood pressure. These levels for blood pressure are arbitrary levels which have been stablished to define persons who have an increased risk of developing a morbid cardiovascular event and/or will benefit from medical therapy. For example patients with a diastolic pressure>90 mmHg have a significant reduction in morbidity and mortality rate if they receive adequate therapy. They , then , are patients who have hypertension and who should be considered for treatment. It also depends on sex, age, race, and concomitant diaeases. For example for diabetic patients the blood pressure should be less than 130/85 mmHg . In the first year of life the acceptable levels are 90-100/60-67 mmHg and in the late teens 100-120/65-75 are considered normal.

I went to the doctor today and the nurse kinda freaked me out a bit. my blood pressure was 110 over 40 and I m 16, 5 3.5 and 134 lbs. And when I asked if that was a good blood pressure she said well the 110 is, but idk about the 40...it s usually more like 60...but idk if that s necessarily bad... And then my doctor never mentioned it or anything, soooo, is that a low blood pressure ? or is it ok? Anyone know ?

i am cipro for a bladder infection....on about the last day i started to feel an odd head pressure from temple to temple...3.5 days after cipro i still had the inf. so am on cipro another 10 days...i still have this head pressure on and off all day....had a headache for 2 days while on the 2nd dose but my period started so not sure if that headache was from that because i get bad headaches every month while on my cycle...but i did have this headache and had nausea and vomiting from it.....i still have about 5 days left of cipr. I am concerned the cipro is causing my head pressure....i have told my dr. about it..she told me to get my eyes checked (because my vision gets funny with the head pressure) and she told me to take a decongestant (i don t have a cold or anything). I am concerned about intracranial hypertension that a freind mentioned to me.
