My blood pressure is 70 / 30. Is that low or high?

They seem to be really on me about it. And I have fainting episodes. I m getting worried. What can happen if my blood pressure is this low? My heart rate is also low, and I eat only once a day. I also suffer from insomnia, so I do not sleep. What can this lead to? I ve been to doctors. And I have to go to the hospital every week. They tell me I should already be dead, but I don t know how serious it is. I guess it is. Is there anything I can do to raise it? I m starting to become rather worried. I haven t felt good in months. Haha, I ve been admitted into the hospital for it. And it s possibly a bit above 70. It was in the seventies though. I m on so much medication it s not funny. But i m looking for anything else I can do help.

who is measuring your blood pressure? 70/30 is extremely low. Get thee to A&E, and get a relative or close friend to go with you. Do it now. THEN go figure out what's going on with your eating habits. This will take longer. You will need serious support over a long period. These are quite serious issues you are reporting here. PS I'm with Randy - 70/30 is low enough to have been dead for weeks. Who's measuring it? Do they really know what they are doing? But the fainting and the rest all says that, yes, it's low anyway. Get help. PPS something doesn't add up here. They measure 70/30 - and they let you go home? I suggest seeing your GP and breaking down in tears - really, turn on the waterworks big time, give it big drama - and tell him/her all your fears and beg/insist that you see the right specialist, whoever that is.
