If your blood pressure has been running low and heart rate high for a while, then that is probably your baseline. It varies for everyone. If these values are abnormal for you personally, then maybe you are dehydrated. This can lower the amount of blood in your body. Hence making your heart pump and work harder in order to get blood flow and vital oxygen to your organs and tissue.

My husband has a history of heart disease. He has an ICD . His blood pressure is running 90/66 to 88/57. He is feeling tired and sorta lazy like. Normally BP runs 108/68 to 100/59. His pulse rate fluxes from 70 to 71. I feel his BP of 90/57 is too low. How can I safely raise is a little. JAK

Hi! I am 5 1 and 115 pounds...I am 28 years old and a mother of three. Besides my kids keeping me crazy busy, I also highly active/high paced job where I am on my feet straight for at least six hours a night. I do high intensity workouts about five days a week consistantly. My blood pressure has always been normal but these last few months it has been low. My last check up it was 92/70...my doc said it was ok...but im wondering if there are maybe other things i should be watching out for. My heart rate always seems to be fast, even when imaying down??

Well, I was doing the tests to pass time and I had 66 as Systolic, 54 as Diastolic and 44 as pulse. Where normal is 130 for systolic, 85 for Diastolic. My grandfather suffers from high blood pressure and he tells me that is almost as if I was dead. This is freaking me out, I did it a couple of times to see if I had moved or the machine miscalculated. But the results weren t of great variation. Well the only problem I have is that yes I always have dizziness ...I noticed that when I take energy drinks my pressure will go up. when I dont drink it I feel bad.
