Dear Emmanuel

Well, I know someone here knows the ins and outs of BP stats and exactly what they mean, but it isn't me.

But regardless of what it means specifically, it does mean that you should probably talk to your doctor about these findings.

Are you seeing an HCM specialist?

I am definetly not an expert on BP, but my husbands pressure often goes as low as 90/45. His dr. said that as long as he isn't vomiting or passing out then do not worry about it. You should really talk to your own dr. about your concerns. What made you decide to take your pressure at 3 a.m.? Were you feeling sick or dizzy? My husband can tell right away when his is dropping.

Take care.

Your blood pressure is in the average area. If you are concerned about it contact your doctor.
