Hi, I am a 21 year old girl otherwise healthy but I have had low blood pressure for a year or two now, my last measurement being 75/44. I want to know if I should further investigate this or leave it? I have experienced dizzy spells, lightheadedness and fatigue over the past year as well but I ve just been told everyone feels like that sometimes ?

My wife is a healthy female age 51 who just went to the doctor today to let him know she had been feeling tired a lot more than usual. He took her blood pressure and it was 184/90 she normally has a pressure of 110/70. She said doctor didn t seem overly concerned since she told him that the high number was unusual. He prescribed Paxil and told her to not worry. Should we worry or not.

hi, I will be 40 weeks pregnant in 2 days, and my blood pressure has been running kind of high. I was feeling bad today and checked it and it was 150 over 104 and pulse rate was 116. I went to the hospital and they sent me home, for the second time in a week. Of course when I got there and laid down, it got a little better. Anyway, the doctor said that this wouldnt hurt my baby to have this high of pressure, and that it would only be bad for me. And she also said that she really wouldnt be worried unless it went to 200 over 110 or 120, and she would only be worried for a stroke. My question is, should I believe her? She said I didnt have to be on bed rest and that what I did wouldnt really matter. Im only worried for my baby, and I obviously dont want to wait until im on the verge of a stroke to seek help. What do you think?
