I m 18, 5 11 , 142 pounds and I m a runner. My resting heart rate is around 52-68 I have a large left ventrical

Can anyone PLEASE give me some advice about my blood pressure . It s off the clock and I m a teen athlete! I m 18, 5 11 , 142 pounds and I m a runner. My resting heart rate is around 52-68 and my blood pressure is anywhere from 140/70 to 160/80. My doctor said not to worry since my diastolic(?) is normal. It s not a matter of diet , exercise, or weight. What s causing this ? I had some tests done and I have a large left ventrical. Apparantly thats nothing to worry about either.. Also, I get tunnel vision when I stand up, almost to the point where I pass out..I thought that would be more of a low bp sort of problem. Any advice would be much appreciated! My parents have great blood pressure. Both are around 110/70

I don't know what's wrong, except that I DO think it's time to find another doctor. Passing out is NOT normal!

Prior to November my resting heart rate was between 68-71, since then after every meal it drops to mid 50 s to 60, and now my resting heart rate is 52-53. I have not increased exercising and have fullness/bloated belly. It also is dropping into the mid to upper forties when I sleep and my body wakes me out of deep sleep during this drop. I have lost 22 pounds also during this time.

I have had a problem with my heart beat rate changing from laying down at about 70 to 80 bpm, then sitting 90 to 120 or so, then to standing around 146 to 165 and my monitor says EE for error if higher at times. I have been sick with many other symptoms, blurry vision off and on, no appetite, Major Depressive Disorder, Migraines. While preparing medical records I have for an attorney for social security, I noted one doctor had a CT scan taken in 2005 and it said I have a posterior fossa arachnoid cyst, but he didn t think it was anything important. I did some research and found several articles that lead me to believe this may very well be what is causing my problems.... I had also be reviewing cases of Neural Mediated Hypotension which I seem to have quite a few of the same symptoms as some of the writers. Could this cyst being over the nerve area leaving the brain cause me to have Neural Mediated Hypotension?

When sitting still I get a feeling like I m on a boat. Dizzy spells and shaky hands even though I ve had a meal and I usually need to eat something sweet to stop the dizziness.

My 16 year old daughter fainted yesterday at school about 30 minutes after taking Bayer asprin. Today, before giving blood at her school blood drive, a nurse checked her blood pressure and it was 90/62 (they let her give blood anyway). After giving blood, she felt very weak and could hardly stand up. Could her fainting be from the asprin or could it be a side effect of her low blood pressure?
