My blood pressure is 147 over 99 with a pulse of 99. I have a pacemaker. Is this to high?

BP/Pacemaker: Blood pressure (BP) is too high. Goal is ~120/80 - need additional meds to lower your bp. With pacer the heart rate may be "normal" if the pacemaker is sensing/tracking your own organic pacemaker, which at your age i suspect that it is, and this would be a normally functioning pacer. Otherwise, the sensor in your pacemaker may have been set too high. ...Read more

Is a blood pressure reading of 147/75 normal for a 43 year old man?

Is a blood pressure reading of 147/75 normal for a 43 year old man?

Blood pressure: The upper number of 147 is a little on the high side, but not terribly so. The fact that the numbers are odd numbers suggests to me that the pressure was measured with an automatic cuff. Manual BP readings are more accurate, and in any event one should not decide too much on the basis of a single reading. Multiple readings taken over time are more useful. ...Read more

Hi, my blood pressure is 65/50 should i be worried as its normally about 120/95?

Recheck the pressure: If your blood pressure truly is 65/50 you should be seen immediately. You should also have a fast heart, feel very weak, dizzy, sweaty, nauseous and not likely be able to check your own pressure or sit and type out a question. The pressure and heart rate needs to be rechecked and if somehow it really is that low call emergency services and do not try to drive. ...Read more
