Could you suggest me the cause of high BP reading ?

My wife's blood pressure is always about 75 over 94 /100 I think that the second reading is high could you
confirm whether i am right or wrong and could you suggest the cause of the high reading ? She weighs 73 kilos and is 5f 8 inches tall, we eat no fatty food and generally live a healthy life style. She is always complaining of pains in her legs and some nights she has to get out of bed and walk around. serious answers would be much appreciated Thank you . SORRY I MADE A MISTAKE ! IT SHOULD READ 175 over 90/100

It's the bottom number that is important. the normal blood pressure for a woman is approx 120/80 ; so if your wife's is 100 that is high; & the fact that she has pains in her legs points to a possible circulation problem; so she really needs to see her GP. hope that's helpfull !!

Hi, I just left my Doctor an hour ago who was OBVIOSLY having a bad day. I m being treated for HBP and was giving something I ve never had before. She gave me 4 different pills, the one in question is Vasotec. I m online to see what exactly it is. When I read the side effects, I fit all of them. I was feeling these before I took this new one, the other is Atenolol. Is it really important to notify her, cause I feel just fine other wise. It s not like her to give me something & not tell me what it s for. Thanks, Greg L.

Our 30 year old son is 6 ft. 5, overweight 320. Smokes cigarettes , probably at least a pack. He has been unemployed for 2 years, has mental health issues & gives plasma for money. Recently he has been turned down because of high blood pressure (160/90 a few times then 130/90) and for the last month a pulse rate of at least 103 & more often 108. He is on state aid healthcare & has an appointment for December 15 with a doctor. He works out at the gym intermittently, starting back a few weeks ago. Does the elliptical machine & then dances & stretches. He has at least two cavities & is in need of deep cleaning, but most not covers by his healthcare & he is resistant to our advice to go to a dental school & we will help pay. My most immediate concern is his pulse rate & blood pressure. I read somewhere that he should go to emergency that it is dangerous. Could you let me know your thoughts.

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?
