I think 120/80 is the norm. Doctors tend to freak when the lower figure goes above 90 - 100.
You think guys without pressure problems don't stress by nature ?a BP of 110/60 is perfectly normal. a BP of 130/90 is perfectly normal too.
you guys worry too much. you need to look at the diastolic component (the bottom number). if it's > 100, you should worry.
Huh?yep, you can also suffer with low blood pressure too. Just as dangerous.
vswiki hypertension said:Persistent hypertension is one of the risk factors for strokes, heart attacks, heart failure and arterial aneurysms, and is the leading cause of chronic renal failure
wiki hypotension said:Hypotension is a medical concern only if it causes signs or symptoms, such as dizziness, fainting, or in extreme cases, shock.
omg. Can't believe she tried 3 types of meds before cutting caffeine. Totally irresponsible imo given the amount of side-effects these heart meds have.She then put me on prexum plus which has a beta blocker, but the side effects just got worse, so she then put me on a different class of meds called Ziak. Once all the side effects cleared, I noticed there was one thing that kept happening - major palpitations, at random times of the day. This went on for awhile, I didn't notice any particular pattern to the occurrences, so I spoke to the doc about it. She suggested I try lay off caffeine.
Father has had both extremes. Was hypertensive but with the collapse of certain neck veins he also gets low blood pressure. Basically it can cause him to pass out and it makes you more susceptable to a heart attack in that state. Like everything in life, middle ground is king.Huh?
Remember having high blood pressure when I was younger.. Not fun .120ish is good, but it also depends on your fitness levels and such.
Perfect is 120/80
I'd say anything above 150 (constantly) needs to be looked at...
Anything more than 200 is SCREAMING DANGER DANGER!
