A normal bp rate is 90 - 119 / 60 - 79,, its a clear case of hypertension Stage 1 where systolic is 140 – 159 & diastolic 90 – 99,, YOU REALLY NEED A MEDICAL ATTENTION,, The systolic pressure doesn' bother much as compared to a high diastolic pressure,, well am 22 now,, & i'd once experienced bp as high as 160/100,, i felt like a huge weight pressed upon my head & i was unable to walk,, well look into the link below for a natural cure of high blood pressure,,,,,,,,,,,, http://www.articlesbase.com/diseases-and-conditions-articles/how-to-cure-high-blood-pressure-naturally-567875.html

I am a 44 year old female weight 160, height 5/3,disabled due to 5 failed back surgeries, my blood pressure is normally low even after surgery and with sever pain.My normal blood pressure is about 110/67. I have been monitoring it since last night due to eating salt to try and get it back up (get very dizzy when it is very low) it was 97/55 then a hour later 95/ 55 and my heart rate was 65 (my heart rate us usually 90 resting, not sure why) today with not eating yet my blood pressure was 105/60 pulse 75, then let dog out and sat back down for 15 minutes and it was 136 over 86 heart rate 115 (started getting a headache also). took again in 30 minutes of resting and 109/57 pulse 86. what can this mean? it goes so low sometimes that the nurse at hospital went and got 3 different cuffs because she said I could not be awake with a blood pressure as low as it was (at that time it was 80/45) no one seems very worried about this but me, I get too dizzy and fall, which doesnt help my back problems. all I get told is eat salt, I eat enough salt for 5 people some times , just trying to bring my blood pressure up, I am actually starting to hate the taste of salt.am I worrying over nothing? I keep getting told low blood pressure is better then high, well if I fall down a flight of stairs and break my neck I dont think so LOL any ideas would be greatly appreciated, or just tell me the drs are right, eat salt and stop worrying :) thank you

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
