May be essential htn: When young pts have high blood pressure i always.

Blood Pressure (Definition)

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

Drink Water!: You may be experiencing dehydration. This can be made worse when on BP meds. Also, if this is a new dose change, you may require a medication adjustment. You should talk about this with your doctor. Best of luck! ...Read more

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

What does it mean when your blood pressure is 105 over 73 and you're only 22 years old and pretty healthy?

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 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

High BP: The blood pressure listed is high. If remains high it should be treated. In the long term, untreated hypertension would increase risk of heart and vascular disease, kidney disease, stroke, etc. Try weight loss and low salt diet. If not improved then see you doctor to discuss treatment. ...Read more

I am 24 years old and my blood pressure usually between 104/60 last night my blood pressure dropped to 97/64 and then it went down to 91/57 is that ok?

I am 24 years old and my blood pressure usually between 104/60 last night my blood pressure dropped to 97/64 and then it went down to 91/57 is that ok?

Low BP can be normal: A BP of 97/64 is on the low side but can be normal especially in young women. If you feel lightheadedness, then it would suggest that your BP is too low. It is normal for the BP to rise temporarily during exercise and return to baseline after resting. Test your BP monitor on others to see that it shows different readings on them. ...Read more
