I bought an Omron blood pressure monitor have just taken my first blood pressure reading. Then nine more readings as I was quite shocked by the readings. Five readings off each arm. Systolic ranged from 97 to 101. mostly 98 and 99. Diastolic ranged from 58 to 65. mostly 62 and 63. They seem awfully low. I wanted to ensure I didn t have high blood pressure but now find its lower than normal which I m told is around 120/80. I vaguely remember having it check years ago by a GP and I think he said something like 120 or 130 over 70 or 80. He died a few years back, so there is no way I can confirm that. Could this be a problem? Why so low? Comments?

Hi, question on BP . I am a woman, age 53, cholesterol 182 (mostly good, not on meds). I exercise daily (aerobic, some weights), have vasovagal syncope . Cardiologist says it is a mild case. I had been having low BPS like 90/50, some dizziness . No meds, told me to hydrate, increase salt intake. Stress test/echo last July was normal. Lower BP number he said did not adjust as quickly as he would like, but said not to be concerned. He said it often indicates that I will have high BP at some point in my life. No weight issues but I do have chronic fatigue . SO - here s my question. I went to the MD for another reason and my BP was 135 over 88. He said it was a little high but I am always very nervous at the MD office. He took it again a minute later and it was 120/80. He said to check it at home from time to time. So yesterday I checked it in the afternoon and it was 137/90. I feel like I am having some anxiety - probably over this! I checked it after exercising today (15 mins after) and it was 126/80, pulse 70. What does this all mean? pre-hypertensive?
Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.
Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.
Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?
Other drug that I take;
- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg
- Plavix 1 x 75 mg
- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.
Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

I am a 25 yr old female that has recently lost 70 pounds and suffers from pcos. I am off all the bp medicines I was taking, and have been on a gluten free diet since 4/21/11 b/c I am allergic to wheat. I have been getting dizzy, lightheaded, and have a fast heart rate and low blood pressure when standing or sitting up. my heart rate is usually in the 60 -70 range when resting, and it's been in the high 90 - 100 range while resting. The dizziness started Sunday 6/19/11 all of a sudden, and I have kept track of my BP and symptoms since Sunday. I get this intense pressure in my head, and the get dizzy, and my heart will race when I start to feel yucky, I have trouble breathing, when my heart rate is up this high for no apparent reason. My BP will be 93/62 and HR 101 standing, or it can be 114/65 and HR 80 a few minutes later.. but if I go from lying down to sitting, it will be elevated, then it elevates when I stand, if I lay down everything is fine.. the pressure in my head goes away, the dizzyness goes away, and the HR goes back to normal... I have a shunt in place for hydrocephalus, my first shunt was placed at the age of two weeks, and first revision was done 4/5/2010. I want to know what is causing this fluctuation in BP and the dizziness, and fast HR...thanks
