Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The height ;body;weight all is fine but your BP of 96/55 is slightly on lower side .It may be due to less intake of water.Please increase water intake and you can take electrolyte powder with that .It will reduce tiredness and increase your BP till normal value which is 120/80mmHg.
Thanks

My husband has a history of heart disease (had bypass last year), depression , diabetes , parkinson s, and more. I just took his blood pressureand it was 79/55. He has always had low blood pressure until recently and it has been running high without medication - under control with meds. He is normally in the 105/75 range. Should we consider visiting the ER?

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
