Hi,
This type of variation in B.P is consideed normal,so you dont worry.use hot water ,milk, tea with tulsi and ginger or coffee.

Hi,
your blood pressure is quite normal,due to slight low BP and as you are 88 yrs you may feel dizzy due to low circulation in the brain.
you take plenty of liquids and proper diet and multi vitamins supplements by which you feel energetic and sense of welbeing.
Due to cold you might get lithergy and weakness.
O k bye and take care.

I woke up about midnight with the worst headache I have ever had, I felt dizzy and my hands were trembling. My eyesight was blurred and I felt distanced. I went to ER and my blood pressure was high for me at 135/85. My pulse was 100, I was given pain killer IM and sent home. I felt very cold and shivery. I am a fit 43 year old woman, I don t smoke or drink. But over the last week or so I have had some pain in the left side of my abdomen, blurred vision in my left eye and been suffering from vertigo for a few months even when sitting down. I was diagnosed with very low blood pressure last year. I am 5 10 and weigh 73 kg.

I went running yesterday and got very dizzy afterwards. My blood pressure was way down. 75/58 but I increased my blood pressure medicine since my blood pressure had been up so I didn t take it today. It is slowing going up but not normal yet. 107/69 24hrs later and I just notices I have about 50 red bumps up and down my thighs. Any thoughts. My neck is also stiff but that is not unusual just a little stiffer than normal. Thanks

Hi. I always have low blood pressure and I am always pale. I easily get tired. The worst blood pressure reading I had was both the diastolic and systolic reading were below 60. I forgot the actual reading but it was sort of like 59/56. What should I do? Whenever I go to the hospital or clinic they would say everything is fine and nothing is wrong with me. My Hb is 11 the last time I checked. I am a 17 year old female btw

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?
