Low blood pressure-sould I be worried ?.
low bp can be as bad as high bp. i have low bp, and i fall over sometimes and have crap circulation to my feet following soem weird vascular disease. my RHR was about 50, now more like 60.
If you are falling over lots, blacking out, suffer neurological problems such as fitting, erratic mood changes (rage etc) blindness, dizziness, confusion and dribbling, then yes for you, low bp is a problem. given that you are on a (semi)cycling website, i'd guess you ride some kind of bike and are probably quite fit. given your low RHR, your probably have cardiac hypertrophy, where by your heart has effectivley become stronger, so needs to beat less to get the blood round as with each beat it pushes more. as a result BP relaxes because why keep the pressure up just cos you can? The circulatory system is an adaptable system that varies to meet demand. Unless you feel ill, you are probably not.
Just tell the guy at week that he's a fat waster and WILL die soon. if he looks fat (or appears helathy) tell him that its the fat on the inside that'll kill you not the fat on the outside and dead US soldiers in vietnam had an average age of 19 and all shown signs of developed ischemic heart disease. then look smug and wait for him to punch you or something.
You're fine, enjoy the sun. If yu want higher BP, eat chips, drink beer and have a smoke!Posted 7 years agomattpMember
i'm 110/50 and 40. i've allways had v low blood pressure which led to a stay in hospital in my teens to try and find the reason. nothing ever found and allways been fine apart from an inherited high colestorol level.
as above if you're fine in yourself then don't worry – my warning sign is standing up from sitting or lying and feeling dizzy. i just take a few deep breaths and i'm right asPosted 7 years ago
