Does anyone have a table/chart to find out what your blood pressure should be? I can't really find much on what constitutes "low", only high.

Well when I was admitted into the hospital for ED's, my pressure was 70/30, which is extremely low.

Your age plays a bit of a factor too - here is a link with some more info:

Actually it's not, it's to high. They recently lowered it.

hrm. sounds like I need to turn the tv on for something besides playing games. and read on the internet more than veganism and so forth.



heh

my mantra is as long as I eat fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds drink lots of water, exercise for 45 minutes to an hour each day that I will be in great health.

130 over 90!!!



thats what mine just read as. sheesh.



Ive got a headache too and my left arm 'in the bend' of the elbow is jumping. what the frig. my left eye is doing it too. jump jump jump!



Im guessing from stress at work. today made the 31st day I have worked straight. including saturdays and sundays. Im salary so I get screwed and we dont have enough people on our team.



I told them at work that I was going to need to take a few days off that I was getting very burnt out.

I took tomorrow off as a comp day. Monday is a holiday. Im not on call right now. w0ot!

good thing Im off for the next 4 days. maybe I can relax some.

a google search on hypotension revealed that: "When your systolic blood pressure is blow 80, it is known as hypotension (low Blood pressure)"



you're good i remember in my freshman biology class, we had to measure our blood pressure, only i was either really unhealthy or measured it wrong, because it was 80 over 60 or 50, and my teacher was cracking undead jokes at me



eta: haha, but how trustworthy is a site whose master can't spell "below?"

Hmmm yeah that doesn't sound like the most accurate site especially since below 80 is good, not bad. Here's an accurate one: http://www.americanheart.org/present...tifier=3011728
