hello carlos,
Welcome to Health Care Magic.
normal blood pressure ranges from-120/80 + or - 10 mmHg.
If you want to know your blood pressure i would suggest you to go to a physician and have it checked instead of doing it your self.
take care

Good morning. I was wondering how long does bisoprolol stay in your system. about a year ago, my doctor took one blood pressure reading 140/90 and put me on bisoprolol HCTZ. Four days prior, my OB/GYN took my blood pressure 120/70. I told my primary care doctor, but he still put me on blood pressure meds despite the fact that I told him I was extremely stressed after losing my job. At any rate, I started weaning myself off the meds after taking it for 8 months July 2010-March 2011. When I exercise, I get very good readings 101/75, 99/68, 103/76 and sometimes a little higher 121/77. Prior to being placed on the meds, my blood pressure normal range was 116-120 over 70-78. Now that I ve stop the meds, if I miss a few days of not exercising my pressure is all over the place ie (151/97, 137/86, 122/83, 115/75, 140/90, etc).

Hi, I have a history of heart trouble in the women of my family. My mom died suddenly in her sleep. Autopsy revealed thast her heart was 3 times the size it should have been. I had an issue with my bp when I was pregnant with my son. Now, with a change in my diet, and exercising it has come down a lot. However I m still worried. I m 32 yrs old and my bp is 121 over 76. Is that good or do I need to be worried. That bottom number worries me because its always ranges from 70-78.

i am cipro for a bladder infection....on about the last day i started to feel an odd head pressure from temple to temple...3.5 days after cipro i still had the inf. so am on cipro another 10 days...i still have this head pressure on and off all day....had a headache for 2 days while on the 2nd dose but my period started so not sure if that headache was from that because i get bad headaches every month while on my cycle...but i did have this headache and had nausea and vomiting from it.....i still have about 5 days left of cipr. I am concerned the cipro is causing my head pressure....i have told my dr. about it..she told me to get my eyes checked (because my vision gets funny with the head pressure) and she told me to take a decongestant (i don t have a cold or anything). I am concerned about intracranial hypertension that a freind mentioned to me.
