Your pulse rate is fine and your BP is not really too low. Low blood pressure is usually 90/60 or less. Your bottom number is close, but this is not a bad blood pressure. If you are having symptoms of dizziness you should consult your doctor about this and make sure he/she is aware. Continue to monitor your BP since your physician did decrease one of your medications and stopped the other. Your medications could have caused your blood pressure to be lower, but again is not a bad blood pressure. But still monitor your symptoms and consult your physician.

I took er 50 mg this morning at 8am and my pulse rate is still high 142 and am still feel it beating in my throat and get dizzy. I have been on this med for 2 days now. I thought my pulse rate should go down. Is this normal? I am resting but it is not getting lower.

Hi, I m a 29 years old male. A lot of times when I wake up in the morning I feel very lethargic, heaviness feeling and maybe very slight dizziness. I checked my heart rate and it was fine, 118/81. But I realized my pulse is always 50 after checking several times. I understand that the normal rate should not fall below 60. May my low pulse of 50 have anything to do with the way I am feeling this morning? I m not very athletic, but have a decent fitness level. I go on a run once a week regularly for the past few years now.

I'm a 26 year old man who is admittedly out of shape. For about the past 24 hours I have been feeling discomfort in my heart, about the time I had an argument with a spouse. We have since resolved the issue, but I still feel the discomfort in my heart. Using a stethoscope I have I recorded my heart rate at 78 beats per minute, but it seems to speed up and slow down inconsistently. I take no medication. I'd like o figure out what this is and how to fix it.
