What does it mean when your blood pressure is 105 over 73 and you're only 22 years old and pretty healthy?
Totally normal: It means you have a totally normal blood pressure- or at least you had at the moment it was taken. Our blood pressure changes moment to moment- if you take it 10 times a day you get 10 different readings, so a single reading may or may not be typical, but 105/73 is totally normal and no reason for concern. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diastolic BP: I am assuming that your "lower blood pressure" is your diastolic (d) one. If your BP was 120/80, your diastolic one would be "80". Most physicians (p) do not look at the d BP as being important any more. It is the top number, or the systolic BP that physicians consider important. In the absence of any symptoms, you have nothing to worry about. Speak to your p about your concerns. ...Read more

The : The most important cause to rule out in situations like this is the presence of a tumor of the adrenal gland, called a pheochromocytoma. Even with these symptoms such a tumor is rarely found. The diagnosis can usually be made by analysis of a 24 hour urine collection or by blood tests. Other possible causes of these types of symptoms include: panic attacks, labile hypertension, anxiety, hyperthyroidism, migraine headaches, central nervous system lesions, seizures, carcinoid syndrome, drugs (including cocaine, lsd, amphetamines, and others), and tyrosine ingestion combined with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (which are a type of antidepressant drug). In many patients with episodic hypertension in whom a pheochromocytoma is not found the cause remains unknown, and treatment is difficult. The symptoms most likely involve activation of the sympathetic system, but the cause of sympathetic activation is unclear. It may stem from emotional factors that are repressed from conscious awareness. This condition is sometimes called pseudopheochromocytoma, and most often includes rapid elevation of blood pressure; sudden onset of physical symptoms, such as headache, chest pain, dizziness, nausea, palpitations, flushing, and/or sweating; and a lack of emotional causes, such as fear or panic, although fear can occur as a result of the worrisome physical symptoms. Episodes can last from ten minutes to several hours; they can occur several times per day or only once every few months. Between episodes the blood pressure may be normal or mildly elevated. ...Read more

59 year old male i take ramipril 10mg per day for high blood pressure & my blood pressure is still high 170/80 what do you recommend please?
BP still elevated: Your blood pressure is terribly elevated. You are ramipril (r) and ditiazem (d), both of which are not being given to you at maximum doses. Call your physician (p) and see if you can go to 20 mg of r and 360 mg of d daily. If that does not control your bp, your p may have to increase the number of BP meds you are taking. If your BP is still > 140 on 4 meds, consider secondary causes of hbp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
