A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

I have had 5 nose bleeds since last week Friday they usually stop quickly I do have high blood pressure?
Nosebleeds: High blood pressure does not generally cause nosebleeds; an exception may be hypertensive crisis, where the BP is very high and causes organ damage. But for the most part high blood pressure is "silent" -- there are no symptoms. Treating high BP reduces the risk of stroke and other complications so do please check your blood pressure to find out if you need treatment. ...Read more

You may be perfectly normal, or you may have either weakness of the blood vessels or problems with your blood that prevent them from clotting normally. Conditions that lead to weakening of the lining of the blood vessels can result in easy bleeding or excessive bleeding when an injury occurs. Also blood problems that result in excess bleeding can occur with liver problems like cirrhosis or hepatitis, kidney failure, or even genetic problems that result from problems with the normal makeup of the blood.
If you have periods still, are they quite heavy?
Have your nose evaluated by an otolaryngologist and cauterized, if it bleeds heavily in the exam room, consider a complete blood count, blood chemisty, hepatitis and liver panel. A coagulation workup by a hematologist may also be a good idea if these fail to realize the cause. It also may be you are perfectly healthy and these are normal findings. I hope this helps. ...Read more

Need more info: Your blood pressure appears normal. Occam's razor prevailing, I must ask you if you enjoy the recreational use of intranasal cocaine, which could account for this entire symptom complex. This question is prompted by my cursory review of your presentation with limited information. If the epistaxis does not stop with applied pressure and your heart rate continues to remain high, see your doctor. ...Read more

I have high blood pressure and currently on meds for it. I want to know what I can take for my nasal congestion? Since the decongestion can raise bp?
Rx nasal sprays: There are two types of rx sprays you can take. Both have very little systemic side effects.

But do you need an rx for them. ...Read more

Why do I get lightheaded a lot had normal MRI 4-18-13 & normal mra dec2012 no high blood pressure or any other health problems is this bad? & head pain
May be BP problem: You have symptoms that suggest a problem called autonomic insufficiency (dizzy spells, passing out, headaches). This is common in young women. Essentially the brain can misread the signals being sent by the heart and blood vessels and cause the pulse to go fast (or slow) and the blood pressure to fall making you lightheaded. A tilt table test can diagnose this problem. Talk to your md. ...Read more
My husband is 20 and has been having random nose bleeds for about 1 year. He had his blood pressure checked always low? Could this still be the cause
No: Nosebleeds caused by high blood pressure is a myth. He should have his nose examined for polyps, ulcers, or erosions and he should have a blood sample obtained to check his platelets and clotting but most likely, it dry forced heat air causing his nasal mucosa to dry out and crack. A humidifier may be all he needs! ...Read more
I been taking more sodium these 3 weeks. Recently I have been having 3 nosebleeds? Is it too late to change? Or do I already have high blood pressure?
Two Different Issues: All life based on water containing salts. Salt intake has little effect on blood pressure, thus check BP, preferably using a mercury gauge (only reliable gauge), stethoscope & someone experienced who will teach you how to read systolic (fist palpable) and diastolic (last palpable) pulse under the center of the cuff. While constantly adjusted by brain, very few consciously aware with any accuracy. ...Read more
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
