Why I have a very low blood pressure of 90/55 ?

the range yesterday was from 90-120/74-82. On Thursday it was very high and this is why I am monitoring after the doctor told me it was very high. No meds for blood pressure involved. Went to the pharmacy on friday took a few times it was 143/70 and then 133/67 and since then has been very low. Very week and no strenght a bit confused in language at times. What does it mean? to funny jet blac I DO NOT SMOKE OR DO DRUGS OR EVEN DRINK

1 or 2 times a year i have a problem with my BP...It goes way high. one time it was 240/180. They gave me drugs that stopped my heart for a 1/2 second. I always feel the attacks coming on...Even woke my kids one time to say good bye< this is a word we NEVER use in my house. good bye is it and i felt like i was going to die. I can sometimes fight them off but its not easy, Some Drs think its a attack...My nerves but it comes out of nowhere. I found when i am not doing good i make the trips to the store to check my BP, I know its high and as the machine starts i kinda freak out knowing its going to be a high #. Stay away from the machine, I wont buy 1 cause i know i will use it anytime i dont feel good. Keep close to your DR dont monitor it as much(get the ok from your DR for this) Low BP is bad also. If you go from real high to real low you need to see a specialist...Maybe this is out of your DRs range. Sometimes our family docs think they can handle all our problems, they are good but they have limite...Thats why we have specialists. Go see one, let your Dr know you are doing it for a second opinion. You owe your DR...NOTHING!!! He did his job...pass the buck now, Its your life do all you can. I have a wife and 4 kids. I have no problem going over my family DRs head with problems. I have been with my family DR since i was a small kid...He gave me my baby shots and i am now 42. But its my life..go see a specialist. best of luck to you

MY partner had a pituitary apolexy 7 weeks ago which he had an operation on, but some of the tumour is still there. He is now on thyroxine 100 mcgs od and hydrocortisone 20mgs morning, 15mgs lunchtime and 5 mgs pm. How much alcholol is he allowed to consume in a day. Also is it possible that the pituiatary gland will work again as it was not all removed. Can hydrocortisone make you aggressive, especially when drinking alchohol his age is 42 years he is 178cm and 102 kgs

Hello Doctor,

My aunt was unwell for the past week with a possible cause of parasitic worms. She had a stay for about 3 days in the hospital which resulted in her being very week. This week when she was home she felt giddy and hit her head to the floor. The various tests conducted have all Thankfully been Fine. She though is very weak and cannot even sit down on the bed. She is currently recuperating in the hospital and the blood, stool tests were norma. The liver tests were having figures on a slightly higher side and are awaiting the cortisol results in a couple of days. The practioners are trying to find the actual cause of the weakness. The ammonia levels were high and sodium was less. She was on a saline 3 concentration sodium. Can you please advise what may be the trigger for this weakness.

I feel my heart beat in my throat. It feels like I am extremely nervous when this happens, and of course it scares me. I have recently had extensive heart tests, including a nuclear stress test and the cardiologist said everything checked out, that if I were to have an issue, it would be minor and not life threatening. What could this weird feeling be and is it life threatening?
