Yes: You may want to talk with your physician about why you'd worry about this -- i think you recognize your concern is baseless. Scientific medicine with lots of measurements generates a lot of numbers, and these vary tremendously. High cholesterol and high blood pressure may be present without your realizing it, but most other labs are guides to interpreting symptoms and mean little if you feel well. ...Read more

RU bleeding?: It's perfectly normal for healthy people to run a low bp, even as low as 80 or 90 (top number). Young women and children often do. If your BP is normally high, low BP could indicate a problem but if you're otherwise healthy, it's ok for you. Typical causes of bad low BP are: gunshot, knife wound, other combat injury, dehydration, sepsis (blood infection), anaphylaxis (severe allergy) & rare things. ...Read more

Is vision connected to blood pressure -- i.E. If i lower my blood pressure, might my vision improve ?
Not usually, unless: Your vision is only affected by extremely high blood pressure, when the effects of high BP affect the retinal vasculature ;/or optic nerve (malignant hypertension). Furthermore retinal blood vessels can be blocked causing loss of vision. Too low of BP usually causes people to feel faint ; pass out. Too low of BP has been thought to contribute to worsening of optic nerve blood flow. Goal bp: 115/70. ...Read more
I am 66. On Monday my blood pressure was 132/94 . On Friday it was 111/72. Is there an issue of concern here.
Not urgent: I will give you a general answer about blood pressure. Getting blood pressure and control helps prevent heart attacks, strokes and kidney problems.

Remember to check with your pcp if you still have concerns ...Read more

I just took my blood pressure and it was 131/92.
That's very high for me. I'm usually somewhere around 110-120/65-75
What were you doing?: The RESTING blood pressure should be ~110 to 120 mmHg (top number) / ~65-75 mmHg (bottom). If you were exercising or had just come in from outside, your BP will be higher - that is not abnormal, that is natural MEASUREMENT ERROR. The TRUE RESTING BP has to be taken 5 minutes after quiet rest - sitting or laying flat - without any mental stress or other pressing worries. Recheck BP & go from there ...Read more
My blood pressure goes up and down throughout the day sometimes it will be 110/75 and sometimes it will go up to 150/86 is this normal?
Yes: If it didn't go up at times, you'd like pass out when you stand up suddenly or when you run or otherwise exert yourself. The lowest reading you get is typically the best indicator of your resting, baseline blood pressure which is what's important. We like to see this below 140/90, which yours is. Good news! ...Read more
Can someone tell me what I should do? My lying blood pressure was 110/75, after sitting my blood pressure was 100/65 what does this mean?
Male 22 blood pressure was 116/72 hr 78 sat down. Stood up went to 126/79 hr 88. Why didn't blood pressure drop as its meant to? Problem?
No problems here: 1. You don't have enough data to make any determination from your blood pressure and the postural changes. Your readings are well within the margins of error for any blood pressure measurement devices on the market. 2. Your youthful body has compensation mechanisms to immediately adjust and maintain blood pressure over almost any postural changes. Don't expect to see changes with those maneuvers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My blood pressure has always been on the low side. For last three days, have been at 145/110 or higher. What could cause a sudden change like that?
Many possibilities: Blood pressure can be affected in the short-term by the level of emotional or physical stress (including pain), excess salt intake in some people, excess caffeine, nsaids such as Ibuprofen or naproxen. If correcting these has no effect, it is important to be seen by a healthcare professional, as there are many other possibilities and too little space to list them. ...Read more
