Anyone can have high blood pressure. As a nurse I can usually explain high blood pressure to most people and they will understand it. It really would depend on what you mean by low intelligent and how low the intelligence is. Obviously if a person has the mentality of a 5 year old the concept of high blood pressure would probably be lost on them. High blood pressure can be very complex to explain if you want it to be or it can be really simplified .

I am 63, weight around 13stones 12, and usually have normal or slightly low blood pressure but my partner who has diabetes and other problems, used his blood pressure monitor on me earlier and it showed 165/89 and a pulse rate of 66 I will make an appointment with my doctor early next week but am concerned, as I haven t felt well for a long time, I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome and due to personal set up here, sleep during the day and am up all night. I am under a lot of stress both personally and financially and have ocd, I hoard. I cannot get the right help for this but currently having counselling. There is a lot of heart disease in both sides of my family, at least three people on my dad s side have/had pacemakers and my mother died from her third heart attack, and had angina. She became diabetic in her 60s and I am just the same body shape as her, apple shaped. Because of my constant tiredness I can t walk far or exercise but try to eat fairly well with lots of veg and fruit. I do eat the wrong things too but never much salt and I don t smoke or drink. I have been given vit d jabs twice in the last 18 months and have Adcal for the vit d too altho I don t take them every day now as I was concerned about heart problems connected with taking too much calcium. Should I be worried? Could this be diabetes causing problems? thanks Liz W.

I am a healthy person 48 years old male. Married, happy and I have a normal nice life,and family. I never faced any serious medical problems. I work hard and my mind is always busy. last August I faced a medical problem feeling that I am go fall down with bad feeling that my heart is going to shut down followed with tachyacardia. This was repeated once or twice per week and each time it became longer in duration and worst. I was transfered to hospital several times with no clear diagnose I visited several doctors and did all possible tests, ECG. blood tests, brain and cervical MRI and MRA and etc and all are clear. Then one doctor diagnosed my case as panic attack and accordingly I stared to take some medication (Dogmatil,unirox, and regulators for BP ) assuring that during the attacks my BP raised to 170/100. In normal conditions my BP is normal even low 110/70. Since last August and up to now I start feeling better but Istill have moments when it is about to start again then I start feeling with discomfort of missing beets above and around my stomach. Also this bad feeling comes after meal and when I laydown immediatly after lunch. Also I have to to have rests from time to time and to laydown otherwise I will feel dizzy again Can you please advise me what to do? (Sorry for my language)

Hello. I am a final year medical student. My mum had her BP taken last week and it was 180/130. She bought a blood pressure monitor yesterday and it has been reading 220/150 relatively consistently since (normal BP readings on rest of family), she has no headache/visual problems. She has rang the doctors-on-call and the nurse told her to wait and see her normal GP in working hours (this means waiting 48 hours). I am worried about malignant hypertension - should I persuade her to go to A&E?

I am a 23 year old man with high blood pressure and a high heart rate. I have for the last two years been suffering from frequent urination and very loose stool. I usually have to go once in 45 mins. I recently have lost the sensation of having to urinate alltogether. It is really scaring me. I have infrequent abdominal pain in front of my left hip and lower back pain too. I am 6 feet tall and weigh 350lbs. I have had my blood tested for diabetes and it came back with great blood sugar. I have also had my prostate looked at and it looks fine. My kidneys were checked and they were fine too. The doctors in a hospital and my personal doctor basically said we don t know whats wrong with you . This is very scary and uncomfortable. I can t work anymore because of this and it s gotten so bad that I can t even leave my own home sometimes because I have to go to the bathroom so much... When I go, it s also a good amount of each, not just a dribble. I don t know what else to do but I really would like some help... I don t know where to turn or what to do anymore.
