You are concerned.. maybe a good thing.
Have you stopped to think what happens when you go to sleep?
What if you didn't breathe properly?
What about your heart.. if it skips a beat and you are asleep?
Have faith in yourself that all is ok.
Trust me Sarah you will be fine.
Get angry and you BP goes up, relax and think beautiful thoughts, and it goes down.
There's an old adage that goes something like this.
Cherish every second you live, and fill each minute with sixty seconds worth of life.
You will be fine.

Hi. I recently went to the Dr. & found out my blood pressure was 170/102. They told me to contact my primary physician & was not able to get appt until next week. I have a home bp machine & have been checking it daily. The reading have been as high as 212/117 & as low as 154/100. But today when I woke up, I have a headache, feel lethargic, my head is a little foggy & my bp was 176/99. My wife is worried & thinks we should head to either Dr. or ER. So I guess my question is, should I see someone or can I wait for my appt?
I felt dizzy and nauseous one morning and thought I was going to pass out, I had to sit on the floor immediately where I was at. I used to think it was low blood sugar but when I saw a specialist she said my sugar levels are perfect. So when this happened I checked my sugar which was 90 then checked my blood pressure . It was 77/48. What can I do when this happens to get my bp up quickly?
Mu husband is 77 years old, and his blood pressure tonight has dropped to as low as 68/34, and is presently at 88 over 39. He takes a blood pressure pill in the morning, but hasn t had one since yesterday morning. He had several drinks at dinner with friends and more activity than usual today. I am concerned that his heart may be acting up, but he says his heartburn is just doing it. Is BP that low dangerous?
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.
