Blood Pressure Bottom Number Over 100
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
Blood pressure 124/74. Paulse 68. Which number matters more? Top sys. Bottom dia. Paulse should be around?
BP reading: The more important number of your blood pressure is the systolic one, in your case, 124. The diastolic one, 74, is less important. Cardiovascular events occur more frequently and are related to the elevation of the systolic bp. Your blood pressure should be below 140 systolic if one is not a diabetic and at 130 if one has diabetes. Your pulse of 68 is fine and should go up with exercise. ...Read more
High above 100 usually around 105 resting pulse. Age 55 obese high bp and diabetic high cholesterol. Wat could be the reason of high pulse no stress?
Blood pressure issue: "dizziness", which a vague term, commonly is reported with high blood pressure, especially if blood pressure rises abruptly from a lower level. The blood pressure is responsible for the dizziness, unless both are secondary to a third factor. Dizziness does not cause hypertension. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Elevated Diastolic: The lowest blood pressure that is measured between consecutive heartbeats is known as diastolic blood pressure. The normal diastolic blood pressure is around 80 mm of hg. However, when this pressure increases by even 10 mm of hg, then it is known as diastolic hypertension. This type of hypertension can cause heart disease, like heart attacks, strokes, heart and kidney failure, etc. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
This morning had Pulse 120 blood pressure 100 / 70. By 5 p.m. have pulse 50 Blood pressure 160 over 90..hex of dvt see other in my hx?
Doesn't sound like: a DVT. Hallmark of DVT is leg swelling and pain, occurring after leg injury or sitting stationary for a long time (like at a casino or on a plane). HR can vary a lot, with stress level, medication timing, & illness of any sort. BP also goes up and down a lot. For example it would be normal for BP to go from 100/70 to 160/90 with exercise.

My blood pressure has been varying medical test normal (echo and tmt). Bp has been range of 120/80 to 130/90. Lower sometimes goes to 100. bp medicine?
Occasional pressure knot ball feeling below sternum. Dizziness faint feeling and blood pressure fluctuate from 94/62 to 128/84?
See your doctor: While heart disease would be unusual in a 35 year old woman, family history, cholesterol issues and smoking could put you at risk. Pain like you're describing, with dizziness and blood pressure changes, is a little concerning. It could be due to stomach ulcers/gastritis or other causes. But heart disease is still a concern. Please have this evaluated by your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Blood pressure: Optimal blood pressure is under 120/80. Various other factors are important in assessing blood pressure readings, including whether you have underlying cardiac disease, diabetes, kidney disease, prior stroke or tia. Your diastolic of 70 is fine, but the systolic BP of 130 is a little higher than optimal. Minimize salt in your diet and maintain a healthy body weight and aerobic exercise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is having a high top number (systolic) blood pressure, but a normal bottom number (diastolic) cause for concern?
Yes: If you have a diastolic number — the bottom number of a blood pressure measurement — less than 90 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and a systolic number — the top number of a blood pressure measurement — greater than 140 mm Hg, you have a common type of high blood pressure called isolated systolic hypertension. Isolated systolic hypertension can be caused by underlying conditions such as artery stiffness, heart valve problems or an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism). For years, doctors focused primarily on diastolic blood pressure. The theory was that the body could tolerate occasional increases in systolic blood pressure, but consistently high diastolic pressure could lead to health problems. However, doctors now know that high systolic pressure is as important as high diastolic pressure — and even more important in people older than age 50. The recommended goal for systolic pressure for younger people is less than 140 mm Hg. For people who are 60 or older, the recommended treatment goal is less than 150 mm Hg. In people with isolated systolic hypertension, treatment may lower diastolic pressure too much, potentially increasing the risk of a heart attack or stroke. So if you have isolated systolic hypertension, your doctor may recommend that your diastolic pressure not be reduced to less than 70 mm Hg in trying to reach your target systolic pressure. Isolated systolic hypertension can lead to serious health problems, such as: Stroke, Heart disease, Chronic kidney disease. ...Read more
