Current BHS(British Hypertension Society) guidelines suggest any blood pressure below 150/90 is normal, if you are diabetic then figure drops down to 140/80. so Answer is , if you are not diabetic, Your BP should be less than 150 over 90

Hi I m a 22 year old woman, weight 110, body fat %19 below normal, and taking concerta. I sometimes have heart palpultations but main concern is by low blood pressure. A month ago it was 100/60 which is kind of normal for me but recently I was 87/50. I m just wondering if I should be alarmed or worried.

Suddenly my heart stops beating and comes back with a blow. I ve been having left side chest pain for quite a few years. My blood pressure used to be very low 80/60. But recently the systolic is normal 120 but the diastolic goes high like 90;100 and above. I m 22 years old female,5 feet 5.5 inch tall and weight around 57 to 59. I m under depression and stress. I ve been asked to do ECG three years ago due to chest pain. My high diastolic pressure is causing me physical problems. Should I be concerned?

Hello, my name is Dianne. I have suffered from hypertension for over 6 years. Several medications did not work. My right kidney was removed in November of last year. My bp came down. I am now on only 200 mg of labatalol 2 times daily. I has been increasing. About two weeks ago I experienced and was treated for bronchitis with Z-pack then started Cipro three days ago. However, I am extremely out of breathe now and have muscle pain from my upper neck to my lower back. It feels as though I am bruised to the point I cant even wear a bra. I have tightness in my chest just to the left side. I also feel very tired and have been unable to work because of this and have gained 6 pounds in just a weeks time. Could this possibly be from my kidney. The last test showed 74% function of the remaining kidney. That was in January, It took two er visits with the chest pain for them to say it was bronchitis.
