Super low BP
I was very scared when I had a reading of 192 over 110. Or whatever it was that crazy night the admitted me in the hospital.
But...I have never been as low as 80/50! Holy crap. So I am up moving around, staying awake. drinking water.
This is the first time I have bottomed out. Boy, you feel it! Flip side of feeling HBP to me.
I feel I am too dosed up. I am going to see a new Doctor next week.
Anyone ran this low ever? It's maddening.

Me too!!! Except mine went as high as 210/125 and as low as 86/60. At one point while I was measuring it, it just kept going down and down and then the machine beeped and there was no reading. I was covered in sweat and light headed. Fortunately, that only lasted a few minutes. I am on 1 losartan, 2 atenolols and 1 triemterene (water pill) a day. What meds are you on? I will be seeing the cardiologist on Thursday. Now it’s about 100/71 and I’m due to take the second atenolol and triemterene but I’m scared to. I completely understand you!!!

I take 1 Metoprolol in the morning, then 1 Losartan, another Metoprolol at bed. Seems like a bit much to me, as each pill is 50mg.
I did not know a BP could read 210/125!! Wow. I went in the hospital with a high BP, but not near that reading.
I can say, I have had great BP my whole life, this is some scary stuff for me. I check my BP often, eat different now and lost weight which was mainly around my belly.
I thought about asking to try to go off the Losartan, I don't like it seems to make me feel icky. Maybe a water pill.
I don't know, I just fired another doctor who says I am a woman....Oh those words!!! Next week I hope to be in to see a better doctor, one who gets it!
I certainly do not want to have a stroke or heart attack. I don't want to harm my kidneys either with these meds.or a high BP.
I feel stuck, and have read so many books already about lowering BP naturally. Seems I have better days when sticking to my diet of plants and fruits, and moving my body!
BUT.....stress is a problem. I worry. So I am now learning how to not give a crap about so much and lighten my load!!!
PS don't let that BP run that high, go to the ER!!!
