Blood Pressure Heart Rate Chart
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
Lower: Blood pressure and heart rate while resting are lower, typically, than when you are active. Typically, both numbers can further drop when you are actually asleep. The numbers that are "normal" for an individual depend on age, level of fitness, and overall health. Heart rate, in a healthy adult, during sleep, can drop into the 30s and be normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm having chest pains on the left side (breast area).. I checked my blood pressure & heart rate-normal what could this be? I had the school nurse check my blood pressure and my heart rate and it was both normal. We even did some pulling exercises to chec
Hello. : Hello. I can't diagnose the cause of the pain in the area of your left breast. I noted that you tagged this as cardiology, which suggests that you are concerned about your heart. I will list some of the symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. I don't hear you describing this constellation of symptoms. Just because you were not able to reproduce the pain doesn't necessarily mean that it is not of a musculoskeletal origin. Your symptoms are very - nonspecific, so there are many possible causes. Being a single mother is terrifically stressful, if you feel stressed consider deep breathing exercises. It is very fast and very effective, breath in deeply and slowly through your nose. Raise your arms so that you can more fully fill the lungs, hold for a five count. Exhale slowly through your mouth. Do this about 12 times, it can be remarkably calming. If you find that the pain is not resolving or is recurring, would recommed evaluation. Take care. ...Read more
I've been feeling lightheaded, weak in the knees, with chest aches. My blood pressure & heart rate are low (82/59 & 57 BPM). How do I feel better?
Can too much masturbation/sex and resulting hormone imbalance/vessel stress cause blood pressure&heart rate problems? If yes how does one fix them?
No: To the extent that you are involved with self sex to the exclusion of other productive activities, the obsession impairs your chances at those productive events.By itself it does not mess up your hormones or blood pressure, but obsessive behavior can lead you to ignore proper nutrition,sleep and exercise, resulting in poor health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
