Male 22 blood pressure was 116/72 hr 78 sat down. Stood up went to 126/79 hr 88. Why didn't blood pressure drop as its meant to? Problem?

No problems here: 1. You don't have enough data to make any determination from your blood pressure and the postural changes. Your readings are well within the margins of error for any blood pressure measurement devices on the market.

2. Your youthful body has compensation mechanisms to immediately adjust and maintain blood pressure over almost any postural changes. Don't expect to see changes with those maneuvers. ...Read more

Is 67/33 dangerous for blood pressure? What could happen if stays that way? Please let me know I cannot find out blood pressure info please explain what the numbers mean....

Is 67/33 dangerous for blood pressure? What could happen if stays that way? Please let me know I cannot find out blood pressure info please explain what the numbers mean....

If: If that blood pressure is accurate it is very low. If too large a blood pressure cuff was used, it can give you a blood pressure reading that seems very low, but is inaccurate. If your blood pressure is too low to keep blood pumping well in the body it can lead to lightheadedness, dizziness, fainting, chest pain, a heart attack or inadequate elimination of waste by the kidneys.
The the top number is called your systolic blood pressure and the bottom number is the diastolic blood pressure. The beating heart contracts to push blood through your arteries. This force can be measured as your systolic blood pressure. The diastolic blood pressure is pressure in the arteries between beats of the heart. If you really have a blood pressure of 67/33 I think you need medical care. I recommend that you get your blood pressure tested by a medical person using a correct sized cuff. If you have low blood pressure and you feel sick - I would get medical help now. ...Read more
