Raised BP can be either Primary or Secondary. Primary is the common one which occurs, say, around 40 or thereafter. Secondary hypertension is a more serious issue. If it occurs at a younger age, it is generally believed to be secondary. Which means that you have to find what caused it( renal, adrenal etc.) Raised BP in any young individual needs a complete investigation to find out the cause. So act.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
