    Is blood pressure of 95/64 and pulse of 92, dangerous?

Hi, I'm a 49 year old woman with three stents following an MI in 2006. I don't smoke and drink moderately. I am 5 feet 1 inch in height and I weigh 8.75 stone. My GP and Cardiologist are not currently available and given the poor state of our A & E I have no wish to go there but at one point what's happening now was an issue but I was in Cardiac Intensive Care so I didn't pay much attention. My blood pressure is 95/64 but my pulse is 92 which given the medication I'm on is fast for me. Have I anything to worry about?
Kind Regards
Mary

Hi,
Thanks for writing to Health Care Magic, I am Dr Asad Riaz, I have closely read your question and I understand your concerns, I will hereby guide you regarding your health related problem.
It would be helpful to know which medications you are on. If you donot feel any dizziness especially on getting up with this blood pressure, no need for change in blood pressure lowering meds is required. However, if otherwise, the dose of your blood pressure med will be reduced and use will be swtiched to night time. As for your heart rate, 60-100 beats per minute is normal. If it becomes irregular, or increases more than that then you ll need to get back to us or your physician
I hope this answered your question, if you have more feel free to ask.

Regards.
