Hi,thanks for query.Your heart rate is high,and your blood pressure the diastolic one is 93 which you can say on borderline.Normal blood pressure for any healthy individual is 140/90 in absence of other illnesses.There is no need to worry about.Just relax,lets time do the healing of your mental trauma and you will be fine.bye.

Hi, After a long and tiring day of work, I had my blood pressure checked at 126-72 with a heart rate of 82. I am a 59.5 yo white male living in the US. I read everything and its opposite on the Internet on this bp level. Is this a normal blood pressure? Should I aim to improve it and how?

Good Evening, I had a few concerns about some recent symptoms I have been experiencing for the last 4 to 6 weeks. I am 30 years of age, 5 2 and 119 pounds. I have a higher then normal cholesterol level of 193. When researching I have read that anything under 200 is considered normal although the docs do consider it to be a bit high. I have also experienced low blood sugar in the past off and on for about 5 years. I seemed to have low blood sugar issues since I caught the virus mononucleosis in 2007. Honestly, my body has never been the same. I have been waking up at night about an hour after falling asleep with rapid heart rate, higher then normal BP of usually 130 to 145 over 93 and heart rate can get up to 110 to 113 at times. I start shaking all over and become weak all over and lightheaded. I feel cold in my hands and feet. I also have a lot of numbness in my hands and feet while lying down and while sleeping at night. this symptom has been going on over a year. I have been to the ER and was told I had a heart arrhythmia but nothing serious whatsoever. I also had a low Rdw of 12.2 blood test and low phosphorus of 2.1. I also have a drop in blood pressure when lying down. sometimes is goes as low as 87/44 but heart rate is within normal range. These recent blood tests were the only tests that were low. I did have an ekg which was normal and chest x-ray which was normal as well. I was recently thinking maybe I had a thyroid issue or endocrine issue. I have had basic thyroid tests done and they were in normal range but my direct T4 seemed to me to be on the lower end of normal. When I told a Nurse from the ER my recent thyroid test results, He said it was on the low normal side. Do I seem to have some kind of heart issue and why do I have these episodes at night? Sometimes the episodes are so severe I have to get into the shower just to shock my body. It can be very scary. Any suggestions or input you can provided me with would be greatly appreciated.

I had a baby 18 months ago and previous to that suffered from Hyperthyroid due to a virus. I was suffering from significant tachycardia and excessive sweating at that time. RAI Uptake was done etc, Virus resolved rendering my thyroid now Hypoactive for the last 4 years. I am currently taking Synthroid 150mcg. I have been a runner my entire life however first trimester complications caused that to cease. I am not just getting back into it and training for a half marathon. I have noted that my heart rate even after 5 minutes of running is around 186 bpm. I went to my GP to have my TSH and T4 checked to be sure I wasn t over medicated. Everything was normal. His response to this high BPM was to add a Beta-blocker. I have leary of taking it because I have read it will greatly affect my performance while running. I also get a quivering type feeling here and there through out the day in my heart. I get extremely flush almost purple in my face when running. I m wondering if there could something significantly more wrong than the thyroid affect as my GP has mentioned. I asked for a stress test and he said I didn t need one. I am 34 years old, slightly overweight still from post-partum. no other medical conditions, no history of any previous medical conditions other than Gestational Induced Hypertension and ecclampsia which clearly has resolved and Gestational Diabetes which also resolved.
