Your blood pressure levels will vary during the day and will normally be highest around lunchtime or after exercise and lowest when you are resting or sleeping. Blood pressure is quoted as 2 numbers, the first number known as systolic pressure, is the blood pressure during each heartbeat. The second, known as diastolic, is the blood pressure between beats. The guideline from the British Hypertension Society defines blood pressure of 130/85 or below as normal but say that 120/80 is the optimal. 140/90 is the level used to diagnose high blood pressure. If your blood pressure reading is consistently 140/90 or above this is considered high blood pressure and treatment may be required. The high blood pressure reading can be either a systolic reading of 140 or above, a diastolic reading of 90 or above, or both.

My uncle is 62 year old and has problems with his blood pressure. Yesterday he was at the hospital and he s blood pressure was fine... a little high but okay. Now, however, it s under 100. for example: the lowest was 84/ 45. The highest was 99/ 62. He is on medication but don t think there working right. On top of that problem he has diabetes and CANCER.... stage 4.... and losing weight. Now that you have this information.... my question is... what is a normal blood pressure for a 62 year old male? And if the cancer and/ or the diabetes are causing it to drop?
I am a 22 year old female. Healthy! 5 2 110 lbs. I have 4 kids. My chest has been hurting for about a week very mildly but i descided to check my blood pressure, and got a machine to do it with from my mom. It is a arm cuff digital machine, and i have tajen it since yesterday frequently in the same position and everything. It is all over the place. this morning it was normal at 115/80 but a pulse of 111 upon waking. then it has been as high as 168 as a top number and as high as 101 as the bottom. There was a few times it was normal. When I felt the worst however (really tired) it was 95/64. My pulse has only been under 100 once and then it was 98.
My blood pressure normally runs 135-146 over 68 to 72. This morning I had it checked and it was 116 on top. I have been feeling light headed for no reason and wondered if that might be why. So I rechecked in about 5 minutes and it was 128/67. It was one of those retail area machines so I asked the pharmacist if it was a good machine and she came out and did hers which came out high for her, so I don t feel like it is the machine. You hear all the time of things making BP go up but what would cause an unusual drop?

i am cipro for a bladder infection....on about the last day i started to feel an odd head pressure from temple to temple...3.5 days after cipro i still had the inf. so am on cipro another 10 days...i still have this head pressure on and off all day....had a headache for 2 days while on the 2nd dose but my period started so not sure if that headache was from that because i get bad headaches every month while on my cycle...but i did have this headache and had nausea and vomiting from it.....i still have about 5 days left of cipr. I am concerned the cipro is causing my head pressure....i have told my dr. about it..she told me to get my eyes checked (because my vision gets funny with the head pressure) and she told me to take a decongestant (i don t have a cold or anything). I am concerned about intracranial hypertension that a freind mentioned to me.
