If that's what your blood pressure is normally, then it's fine. If until yesterday, your blood pressure was 130/90 then it's a bit more of a problem! If it's a problem for you, like you always get faint when you stand up, or you get out of breath easily, then you might want to do something about it. If not, you just might be one of the people who has a naturally lower pressure and it's nothing to worry about. I've got a lower heart rate than a lot of people. I was in hospital once and I kept setting the alarm off cos my rate dropped below 40 when I was asleep even though for me, that was completely normal.

4days ago, I awakened, unable to walk normally. I felt like a drunken sailor on a rocky ship. I went to an urgent care facility; my admission BP was 175/105. Subsequent BPs were similar. I was given an oral med for the BP which lowered it to 110/75. A CAT scan showed sinusitis. An EKG was normal as was a blood sugar. The conclusion was Labyrinthitis/Vestibulitis. I was sent home on Amoxicillon, Antivert and BPmonitoring. I am feeling better. I had had a gunky cold and cough 3 weeks ago but was symptom free at the time of this episode. I feel that the sinuses are clearing but my BP is still high. (154/98 even with my BP medication, Ramipril 10 mg daily, My BP has never been over 145/90 but has been creeping up so was put on BP medication. The higher BP is worrisome. Have you seen increased BPs with a sinusitis?

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?

I am 74 years old and have experienced hot flushes since menopause (at age 54). I experience moderate to high blood pressure and most medications for this make my symptoms worse. I have heart palpitations during these uncomfortable symptoms, experience fatigue and have night sweats which wake me up. I have Sjoegren's Syndrome with Sicca, and Peripehral neuropathy and most other aging symptoms. I don't have dementia, thankfully, but I am curious as to whether hot flushes are impacting on my blood pressure and contributing to my anxieties or could it be caused by my thyroid? My tests show a normal reading for my thyroid. I also had cancer of the uterus, grade 1, and had everything removed nine years ago and have remained cancer free to date. I hope you can help me find a way to improve the situation as I don't have any blocked arteries or heart problems so it is a mystery to me. I am worried about the impact it may eventually have on my heart. Sincerely yours,

Hello.
I'm male.
I'm 45 years old and I got high pressure blood since 17. I am currently taking 5 drugs to control (not at all) my high pressure blood.
In a recent Renal Angiography was discovered that I have my left kidney hypotrophic with important loss of parenchyma in the middle and lower thirds.
Analyses of plasma renin revealed that is high.

This hypotrophic kidney (left) is working by 37% and 63% right according to a renal scintigraphy.
The recommendation of my doctor(nephrology) is to get me out my hypotrophic kidney to control the high pressure blood and avoid having to take so many drugs.

What is your opinion on this?
