  • Sounds like your blood pressure is a little on the low side. But if your like me, that's completely normal. Are you taking your vitamins and getting plenty of iron in your diet?

  • first calm down, blood pressure is gonna be affected by its Sunday. your doc will be able to see you tomorrow IF you still feel its important....Why r you taking your blood pressure? Have you dealt with eclampsia before? If so then you know blood pressure is only ONE of the the doc in the morning until then relax HYDRATE, and eat .

  • Sorry but if the BP machine was correct, a BP in the 80's is not normal it is called hypotension and it can cause blackout etc because the brain is not getting the blood supply of rich oxygen that it needs.. Now the last ready is a very good BP to have. If you continue to feel bad, call your Dr and let them know what is going on.. Make sure you are not getting dehydrated.

  • A person's blood pressure is considered high when the readings are greater than 140 mm Hg systolic (the top number in the blood pressure reading) or 90 mm Hg diastolic (the bottom number).

  • My opinion is that seems very low and i would go to the doc right away instead of worrying about it, i had a doctor once tell me that it's better to be safe than sorry. ;)

  • It sounds to me like your home kit is either not working right or you aren't using/reading it correctly. The CVS reading is more reliable and correct. That is almost what my normal is 110/60. If you aren't feeling well and you are worried - that would most likely RAISE your BP. I would stop worrying about it and stop at any hosp or urgent care and ask to have them take it for you. It's probably just not being done correctly. If you are doing it on yourself - that's probably the problem. It's nearly impossible to do correctly on yourself. Get it checked out and put the issue to rest. GL

  • If your blood pressure is any of the three readings you got your blood pressure is perfect. I have Preeclampsia and my blood pressure at best is 142/89. I am confused as to ehy you are worrying.
