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!

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
