Re: Labile Blood Pressure
When BP drops low, our heart rate increases to compensate. It is not unusual to see a low reading and high-ish pulse. 80 & 90 are still within normal readings. I do really weel with a low BP, the lower the better. I am quite fit with 90-100/60 and anything over 130/85 makes me jittery. Go figure...we are all different. When my BP goes up to lets say 145/90 I am actually feeling very unwell and I get red.
I used to worry about everything heart related because a sibling had a heart attack and I would fantasize about having one myself and croaking it.
I had to get over this and try to lead my life. I have clients in their late 60's and 70's and even early 80's with very high pressures and they have been alive for years and years. I am not saying don't be concerned, you are doing all the right things getting tested and such. But cardiomyopathy is a zebra. And me motto is
"when you hear hoof beats first look for horses and then for zebras".
I'm sure you will be fine.
