Blood pressure decreasing with exercise?
Hi, im too worried to go to the Doctor at the moment, and was just wondering if anyone had heard of this 'condition' before. My biology tutor pulled me to one side at the end of a lecture and has really worried me.
We did experiments with ECG's and heart rate/blood pressure in relation to different activities.
It seems my blood pressure is perfect at rest (116/75), but as i begin to exercise my blood pressure goes down quite dramatically (71/45). My pulse however shot up to 150 bpm.
It wasn't a dodgy reading, as i did exercise on the exercise machine, and took readings several times, even trying a different monitor.
Im quite a fit person, i go to the gym twice a week and live a healthy life style. However i am not some super fit athlete!
What im saying doesn't make any logical sense to myself (im not stupid!) or anyone else ive told. Like i said even my University tutor, who has worked in the medical/biological field for over 15 years, advised me to see my Doctor, and geniunely seemed concerned.
Any help would be greatfully recieved.
