do you think it actually is necessary to see a cardiologist.....it cannot be anything serious can it?
I not a doctor so I really cant give you a definate answer.
The systolic blood pressure (the top number) represents the pressure in the arteries as the muscle of the heart contracts and pumps blood into the arteries. The diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) represents the pressure in the arteries as the muscle of the heart relaxes after it contracts.
Now your diastolic is normal, 70 is perfectly normal. While 90 systolic may or may not be normal. Is low blood pressure bad for your health?
People who have lower blood pressures have a lower risk of strokes, kidney disease, and heart diseases. Athletes, people who exercise regularly, people who maintain ideal body weights, and non-smokers, tend to have lower blood pressures. Therefore, low blood pressure is desirable as long as it is not low enough to cause symptoms and damage to organs in the body.
Now you have the symptoms, so possibly theiur could be somthing wrong. Check out this website
It has a ton of information, but most importantly, see a doctor because low bllod sugar can lead to severe side affects.
Thogh your general doctor will be able to guide you in the correct dicrection. A EKg and Echocardiogram can show, if its the heart as the weakness.
