You have nothing too worry about. Those Blood Pressures are normal. If you want I will be happy to review your medications or your daily routines, such as workouts, age and etc. to give an exact answer. As long as your BP stays above 90 systolic and 40 diastolic you are in a normal range. Some people tend to stay a little lower. If you drop into the 80's systolic that is a cause of concern. Your BP can be explained by a good diet, regular excercise resulting that you are in good shape, or you could be on medications that will keep your pressure a little lower. The bottom line is that it is better to run a little lower then higher.

I was wondering if my blood pressure is something to be worried about. I have been taking it for the past week or so and it has been ranging from around 86/44 to 92/58. I am sometimes dizzy and lightheaded when standing (I have sort of blacked out for a second and had to grab the wall. That was a while ago, though). I also have sort of poor circulation (cold feet and hands). Is this something to worry about and ask my doctor or is it something normal?

I had another bout with blood pressure today. My vision became a little blurred. I was at a University graduation for my grandson and sitting outside in the sun. When I got home I took my blood pressure and it was 83/41. It happened already twice this month. Normally I have been at 140/84 . Should I be worried? Ihave head bp problems since 1985(genetic) and never had any trouble.

In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.

I have a rash in my groin and my body is always itchy. For about 2 years I had rashes on both my feet. It seems to have cleared now but I still have to apply dipresone everyday. I take medication for high blood pressure - Micardi Plus, Zanidip and Spiractin. Are any of these causing my rash problems?
