How could my BP be normal ?

I'm 5'10" 286lbs that has smoked a pack a day for atleast 10 yrs (I'm 31 now), plagued with financial, and emotional stress. I used to work out 5 days a week (5 yrs ago) but I have not exercised in over a year, and I have a desk job. I drink liquor just about everyday. Everytime I check my BP, it is ALWAYS at a normal level. Even when I was pregnant, the dr's were astonished, as I'm obese and gained pregnant weight so fast. How is this possible? My mother has high blood pressure...

What figures are you calling "Normal"? Can you edit your posting and say what BP's you are reading, and the pulse-rates too, please? I think you are at some high risk and would like to help if it's possible.

Mind you Iam not complaining if this is for real and it stays that low.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
