I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Is my heart rate and BP within normal range ?

Its 109/48 and my heart rate is 65. This is the average of 6 tests over two days. I m 15 and 6 1, 150 pounds. I m mainly wondering if my diastolic is too low when taking into consideration my systolic and heart rate. I took it myself using a machine and at 3 different times each day for two days. I already know it can fluctuate over several minutes and that is why i made an average.

a blood pressure of 109/48 and a heart rate of 65 are both healthy and normal for an individual who is either athletic or work out a lot. You said you're 15, so, if you are athletic and work out a lot, then you have nothing to worry about. If you're not, a blood pressure that's constantly below 90/60 is considered to be low blood pressure and should be checked out by a doctor. Also, it's better if you have someone in your family take your blood pressure manually (with a cuff, aneroid meter, and a stethoscope) rather than with one of those monitors because they don't give a perfect reading. You can get the whole package at Walgreen's for under $20. If you need more info. on how to take it manually visit

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.

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?

My hr and bp typically run low but it has been running higher then my normal baselines. My bp usually runs in the 70-80/55-70 s and my hr rarely goes above 90 but the last couple days it s been gettin higher... last reading was 110/72 with hr of 116bpm.. I realize that they are all within the standard normal range but it is not within my normal range... should I be concerned?

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

I am a 25 yr old female that has recently lost 70 pounds and suffers from pcos. I am off all the bp medicines I was taking, and have been on a gluten free diet since 4/21/11 b/c I am allergic to wheat. I have been getting dizzy, lightheaded, and have a fast heart rate and low blood pressure when standing or sitting up. my heart rate is usually in the 60 -70 range when resting, and it's been in the high 90 - 100 range while resting. The dizziness started Sunday 6/19/11 all of a sudden, and I have kept track of my BP and symptoms since Sunday. I get this intense pressure in my head, and the get dizzy, and my heart will race when I start to feel yucky, I have trouble breathing, when my heart rate is up this high for no apparent reason. My BP will be 93/62 and HR 101 standing, or it can be 114/65 and HR 80 a few minutes later.. but if I go from lying down to sitting, it will be elevated, then it elevates when I stand, if I lay down everything is fine.. the pressure in my head goes away, the dizzyness goes away, and the HR goes back to normal... I have a shunt in place for hydrocephalus, my first shunt was placed at the age of two weeks, and first revision was done 4/5/2010. I want to know what is causing this fluctuation in BP and the dizziness, and fast HR...thanks
