There's absolutely nothing wrong with your mother, or her BP readings. She's perfectly normal, and average for the whole population of the Western World, - better than most, in fact. - If only my figures were as good !. Her systolic pressure (the top one) should be roughly 100 + her age, (give or take roughly about 10 -15),- and the lower reading doesn't really matter but can on average be anywhere between 80 and 100.... She's FINE!! If you check anybody's figures they go up and down, and down and up, all day..... so what you're describing isn't even unusual. It's the way the body works. What are you (or she) worried about? the variations? -or the levels? The levels are absolutely average and what they should be. The variations, -well, if they weren't like that, then you might have cause to worry. Ignore the numpties here on Answers. Tell Mom to stop worrying. She's in great shape. Get on with her life. As for calling 911, -sheesh! how will you feel when you get the paramedics there and they say "there's nothing wrong, - why are you calling 911" THERE'S NOTHING WRONG!! Regards
