Luck you ! Low blood pressure is defined primarily by signs and symptoms of low blood flow not by a specific blood pressure number. Some individuals may have a blood pressure of 90/50 with no symptoms of low blood pressure and therefore do not have low blood pressure. However, others who normally have high blood pressure may develop symptoms of low blood pressure if their blood pressure drops to 100/60.

I went to the Doctor s about 2 weeks ago and was diagnosed with a nasty staph infection on my arm. My Blood Pressure was 150/ can t remember! Anyway he immediately wanted to put me on Blood Pressure Medicine. I told him I have no history of high Blood pressure, and after all I had a nasty infection for at least 2 weeks before I saw him. I didn t take the medicine. I m done with my strong Antibiotics and WITH NO Blood Pressure medicine my Pressure I take at home is the following. Last 4 taken 97/35-Pulse 86 106/53-Pulse 87 109/59 Pulse 71 99/61 Pulse 69 Are they in a normal range? Sometimes I feel like someone just gave me a valium -very very tired. I m a 56 year old Caucasian woman who smokes also. Freckles: Thanks for answering, but I don t think you understood what I wrote. My readings I posted are far from being considered high. I only had high BP when I was at the Doctors for a nasty staph infection. John: I never even started to take the medicine, these readings are medicine free.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
