Avatar n tn s been unusualy tired, heart burn but his blood pressure is 124/83, which he says is high for him. His Dad had a heart attack during end stage of cancer.

1398693 tn?1343684738 A high diastolic and low systolic would give a low pulse pressure and it would seem the faster heart rate is an attempt at getting blood flow running normal. A high diastolic can be caused by stiffening of the arteries, through age, or through coronary artery disease. A layer of plaque would reduce the lumen size and increase pressure even when the artery/heart is relaxed.
212161 tn?1599427282 thank you for info always helps to talk to someone. its always been low so strange that its up now. just dont want have a heart attack from the numbers it is 168/86 pluse 60 now.
Avatar n tn The lower number is the pressure when in the filling stage. You are correct 45 is too low, and a very low pressure can cause on to faint or feel light headed. There may be a medication problem, or no problem just an artefact.
Avatar m tn There may be several factors involved in your abnormally low blood pressure. Your heart is compensating by speeding up. Clearly, you could lose some weight. That will help. Keeping well-hydrated is another fairly simple thing with no contraindications. Other than these two suggestions self-treatment could result in a life-threatening emergency.

Avatar f tn I just read up on Coreg - - beta blocker, and on low blood pressure. Beta blockers can cause heart damage which then can cause low pulse - hense low blood pressure. He has 5 stents and is on crestor & plavix. He's also taking a multi vitamin & Omega 3 supplement. Can he stop taking the Coreg? Is there an alternative? He's strong and very active - physicallty & sexually. He's also taking Co Enzyme Q-10.
Avatar f tn It is a tumor that produces an excess of chemical compounds and can lead to persistent high blood pressure or wild fluctuations in your blood pressure, depending on whether the catecholamines are released continuously or in shorter bursts. The intermittent release of these hormones can cause other symptoms to occur from time to time as well. If that is the underlying cause probably the symptoms only occur occasionally. You may get a more decisive opinion regarding the pheo......
Avatar m tn Also, the EF is variable as is the heart rate and blood pressure. All 3 factors adjust to various levels and are interrelated to maintain a balance of blood flow between the right and left side. When the heart normally dialtes that causes stronger contraction and more blood is pumped with each stroke, etc. So it is not unexpected to have a variation of the EF from one test to another. Hope that gives you a perspective, and feel free to respond if you have any further questions.
Avatar n tn I have never had any symptoms and realize many women do suffer the silent heart attacks. I do have low blood pressure and passed out one time. The doc did not mention any other tests.
Avatar f tn I generally have normal to low blood pressure and am worried that these drugs will lower my blood pressure even more causing me to feel lightheaded (which I already do sometimes) and perhaps even faint. I have a 6-yr-old daughter to take care of and can't afford to be incapacitated by dizziness. Is there an alternative to these drugs?
Avatar f tn i know it wont hurt me but maybe thas why blood pressure was so low..i have been told by my heart dr time and again my heart is fine so i dont even know why i have a heart dr.....
447939 tn?1235061943 hiya i suffer from severe health anxiety surrounding my heart, i just wondered if anyone can help me with a question? if you have a mild or major heart attack how would your blood pressure be high, low or normal?
Avatar m tn A fast heart rate can impede adequate blood filling and cause heart failure and heart attack, Also, a fast heart rate can cause arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) and cause cardiac arrest. Thanks for sharing, and if you have any further questions or comments you are welcome to respond.
Avatar m tn I`m not a Doc, but I did have a heart attack at 57 years old. Low chloesteral levels, blood pressure on the high side of normal, low triglicerides, no diabetes, non-smoker, maybe 25 lbs overweight, history of heart problems in family. No pre-warning symptoms either. It just hammered me one afternoon. So, my humble opinion would be Yes it is possible.
Avatar m tn And I took medicine of high blood presure around 1 yr in 2007-08, and after that I get low blood pressure n my doctor stoped that medicine. On Last tuesday 7th feb, I feel high blood pressure n I took blood pressure medicine n alprazolam. N its go down. But next day I feel some heavyness on chest and breathing was not normal. I contact with my doctor and he give medicine. But I not feel much better and I visited again on 14th. and on ECG AVL graph was not normal. Doctor gave me anti- biotics.
886699 tn?1270779744 Blood pressure monitoring, tilt table test, EKG, heart echo, ambulatory blood pressure recording are all required. Hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Addisons’ disease, hypoglycemia, VitB12 and folate deficiency can all cause hypotension. The cause needs to be known for proper treatment. Otherwise any treatment will raise the blood pressure. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do discuss this with your doctor.
Avatar m tn The kidney infection was diagnosed and treated through IV, the high blood pressure failed to normalize after kidney treatment, the kidney were still passing some proteins in the urine after treatment. His legs started swelling and he was diagnosed with heart problems as indicated below.
Avatar n tn I would probably call your doctor on this one. This is a high blood pressure, but it doesn't mean you are having a heart attack. Blood pressures are different depending on what you are doing. Some of the home BP monitors aren't exactly accurate either.
Avatar m tn My biggest fear is heart attack and can this lower heart rate and lower blood pressure can be introduction into heart attayk? :/ Sorry for bad English and thanks for answers.
Avatar f tn I think my husband had a mild heart attack early this morning (4 a.m.?). He had all the symptoms as I looked them up. He refused me to call 911 saying he thought he was ok. By 5:30 he felt well enough to rest, and sleep until 7. At 7 he said his chest was still hurting, but it was not a heart attack. He got dressed and left for work, saying he had a busy day and could not call in sick. I am freaking out b/c everything I read says you need treatment within 24 hours.
Avatar f tn Hi. I am a 51 year old female who had a heart attack at age 48-100% blocked LAD, which was able to be stented. From what I am told, I am lucky to be alive. But, the doctors cannot figure out why I have heart disease. I have several other blockages, mostly between 10 to 15%, but one is at 65% and cannot be stented because of location. I also have heart failure. My heart rate is usually in the low 50's. Yesterday, I felt very sluggish and my blood pressure was 80/53 and pulse was 46.
Avatar n tn Whether pumping capacity can be increased depends on the underlying cause. If the cause is due to ischemia (lack of blood flow to the heart cells), high blood pressure, or other condition that stress and over work the heart, therapy that corrects the condition can cause the heart to return to normal functionality. If the low cardiac output is due to heart muscle damage from a previous heart attack, some medication, drugs, alcohol virus, bacterium, etc.
Avatar f tn My blood pressure is this low normally. I don't take anything. As to getting the pressure up, I am not too sure, but, I really do not think you have to worry unless you are getting uncomfortable symptoms like dizziness, fainting and such. The heart rate is what I call "high normal"I would ask your doc about that. If you are not getting enough rest, I have heard that the heart rate can increase, so can eatting certain foods you might be allergic to.
