If your BP was that low you would be dead, honestly. Your machine is broken. I know this because you are posting a question on answers. Go to a fire Department or an EMS place (ambulance place) and get your BP taken properly. No One alive can have a BP like that I promise you. Andi, if you were really a nurse you would know a BP that low is not even possible especially for the person to be conscious, must less posting on answers.

sir i am 38 yrs old. I measured my BP in the morning and it is 108 (min) over 68 (min) to 117 (max) over 72 (max) and the average reading was 112/74. In the evening the average reading was 125 over 84. All the readings are by my home monitor (good imported machine from Accure). But when ever I visit my doctor the first reading is 140 over 100 and she take a second reading after 5 mins. it is 130 over 90. She has prescribed me 20 mg Telmikind to be taken in night. I am confused and worried for last 1 year. I have stopped all bad habits like drinks, cigarette. Not eating meat, chicken but taking fish twice a week. not taking any sugary products like cold drinks. Restricted taking salt. Doing 45 mins cycling daily (stationary at home) and i have lost 8-10 Kg in last one year. I am nearly 6 feet and my weight is 86 Kg. Done all tests and it is O.K. including, ecg, echo and TMT. Please advise what to do.
