If you've been restricting your calories too much, say if you have an ED, it's a sign that your heart is becoming weak.
If you've been doing some hardcore training, it's a sign that your heart is becoming stronger.
Mind you, some people's hearts are naturally like that; but don't kid yourself if you're not being healthy. =)
Were you dehydrated? That always pushes my blood pressure too low, but I do have a heart defect and a pacemaker/defribrillator.
I'm sure your doc will keep an eye on it. If you ever feel dizzy when you stand up, or have a rapid pulse with it, call the doctor right away.
Thank you very much for the advice!
I have very low blood pressure and the doctor has never been concerned. There was one occasion where my mother was with me and said "Oh my God- is that healthy?" The doctor said not to worry that it was fine for me. I do occasionally feel the effects and have to sit down to clear my vision but otherwise I'm okay. Go with what your doctor says.
Low is definitely better than high. The guidelines were recently adjusted and now systolic pressure of 115 is considered pre-hypertensive. One third of adults in the U.S. have hypertension. I'll spare you the rest of the stats.....consider yourself fortunate. It'll go up after you turn 50 or so..
I too have chronically low blood pressure. I went to give blood today and my blood pressure was 86/63, so I couldn't donate. I felt bad, but at least I don't have to worry so much about sodium intake.
My blood pressure is usually low. I run a few times a week and am a recovering ed, so im not sure if both of those factors have to do with a lower blood pressure. last week it was about 92/60-something..and my pulse was about 63..so that seemed fine to me.
