Weak pulse in wrist also low?

Weak pulse in wrist also low?

Not necessarily: Wrist pulses may or may not correlate with blood pressure. How a pulse feels to the fingers is affected by many factors. Blood pressure is more accurately measured on the upper arm. Wrist BP monitors are helpful but they really need to be verified with more accurate means. ...Read more

Weak : Weak pulse and bulging veins in one limb could indicate a serious problem with the blood vessels in that region. Such problems, which include something called arterial dissection and something called venous thrombosis, could threaten the limb or your life. These sort of symptoms should be evaluated right away. Problems with the large arteries and veins in the neck or in a limb are usually first tested with an ultrasound, using a probe placed on the skin. There is usually no discomfort involved. ...Read more

Weakness: Your symptoms desire to be investigated further to determine their cause. You had a resting rapid heart beat. Was it regular or irregular? You low BP could have been caused by your heart beating either fast or irregularly. Go to your physician or a cardiologist and get evaluated for the cause of your rapid heart rate. Good luck and make sure you are not taking too high a dose of your BP meds. ...Read more

Could I have low BP despite extremely strong pulse and vice versa? Running and extreme strong pulse same BP reading as calm and weak pulse when I took

Could I have low BP despite extremely strong pulse and vice versa? Running and extreme strong pulse same BP reading as calm and weak pulse when I took

Yes: The strength of your pulse is often unrelated to the actual blood pressure. This variance is even greater as we age. The intensity of the pulse can also be affected by thyroid disease, anemia, aortic regurgitation and exercise. Also, the farther you are from the heart, the less the pulse accurately correlates with the heart's output. So, the neck pulse correlates better than the wrist pulse. ...Read more

I had a d&c because i miscarried, im low in my blood and I am anemic, am i going to be ok? I feel weak and my heart pulse is 112.

I had a d&c because i miscarried, im low in my blood and I am anemic, am i going to be ok?  I feel weak and my heart pulse is 112.

Anemia: You are anemic, another name for a low blood count. The blood you lost with the miscarriage may be more than you thought. That you feel weak sounds normal. That your pulse is 112 BPM is higher than normal. Follow your doctor's instructions and look for warning signs that you need to be seen again. To help yourself, push fluids such as gatorade. ...Read more

Maybe anxiety: You have lots of generalized symptoms which sound like they stem from anxiety and depression. See a doctor to rule out a virus, but if this has been recurrent it is time to get therapy. You may have difficulties recognizing stress and coping with what you need to be doing about it. Sometimes it is easier to to focus on things that will not solve the actual problems. ...Read more

29/f i've had extensive heart testing over the year and last month all turns out fine. Why do I have a weak pulse in the morning? low blood pressure?

Pulse=perception of: blood pressure which stretches artery walls as each heart contraction pushes out blood filling & stretching the arteries. This stretch is felt as a pulse. Most medical testing is of low value & for ?$, esp. when people do not pay directly (i.e. via $ accumulators calling themselves "insurance") which routinely ?es quality & ?es all costs. Why? Because: http://goo.gl/Blh6rW. Good docs apply wisdom. ...Read more

Should I be worried if I can't find pulse in wrist but normal pulse in neck?

Should I be worried if I can't find pulse in wrist but normal pulse  in neck?

No, not to worry: Being able to detect a pulse by applying pressure over an artery requires the artery to be quite superficial and easy to feel under the skin. Not everybody's artery is in a location that makes it easy to feel, whether that is at the neck, wrist or groin. As long as you are conscious and can feel a good pulse somewhere, you are good to go! ...Read more
