What is your blood pressure and pulse when sit? Not after any physical activity.
Also what can you tell about how good those numbers are?
As far as I understand normal pulse is 60-90 per minute are normal.
with blood pressure 120 out and 80 in means good?

Another question is, a child's heart might pulse over 100 times per minute, but this is over the average and appears to be an high number of pulses, but is probably because they are young and their hearts are small so need more work to transfer the blood to the whole body?

My pulse appears to be 67 (or was it actually 57? I know it is a big difference I will get it checked again), blood pressure 117/78, is it a good thing or a bad thing?

between 45-50 when resting so quite low. Blood pressure 105/60 last time I measured. It is probably normal for my age. The heart rate increases to well over 200 when I'm having a panic attack eg thinking about the horror of aging. However this has been confirmed to be nothing dangerous and just a normal but very strong reaction to stress.

Your numbers seems good and normal.

My pulse is between 45-55 and blood pressure about 95/60 - 105/65 (usually always within this range apart from when i go to the doctors and get white coat syndrome).

You want to keep your systolic under 115 and then it's healthy.

My pulse is somewhere between 50-60 when I'm not doing anything physical. Last time I measured my blood pressure I got 110/70, but that was a while ago, and perhaps I would get a lower score if I measured it at home - I'm always a little nervous when I'm going to the doctor (not negative stress, though).

resting HR: 45-50
Resting BP: 105/65

Age:36

I'm fortunate enough to have the double insertion ACE polymorphism (ACE I/I). That explains my low HR and blood pressure phenotype

Funny having exactly the same values like when I measured it.....

My pulse is usually between 65-75; looking at the numbers here it appears that I need to do more vigorous exercise to get to those numbers (or perhaps it's because I had not exercised in about a month).

When I exercise I make sure my pulse gets between 150-160 since working your heart 65-90% of it's maximum heart rate is what strengthens your cardiovascular system.

resting HR: anywhere from 55 to 65

BP: 115/80 (sometimes lower and sometimes higher, i don't measure BP that often)

The last time I gave blood my heart rate was something like 58 and blood pressure was 110/75.

114/74
60


I am 33 and my HR/BP is pretty much the same as it was when I was a cross country runner and soccer player in highschool and when I was a muscled out freak able to bench press 400lbs when I was in the USMC. Now I sit in the middle of the two .....older and wiser I guess.

Last time I tested, BP=95/60 and Pulse=50. Used to play lots of football in my younger years, so that may have helped somewhat.

On average my readings are:


HR:58.125

122.625
57.5

Not such a healthy systolic reading.

The last time I took it in the AM at the hospital with a good machine (while on break from clinicals, so not entirely "resting"). My fellow students freak out about my stats these days because on a patient they would be low enough to cause concern. There is always brief mention of lower resting stats in textbooks usually due to being a "competitive athlete" (or life extension enthusiast ha ha) but often people don't read carefully.

pulse: 51

bp: 97/57

That's high enough to medicate if it's consistent. My bp was always on the high side of normal since my teens even. Then out of the blue it crept up into the 140 range, and my doctor recommended a low dose of Diovan. That really did the trick, with no side effects whatsoever. I was on it for a couple years, but then I lost a lot of weight and my bp went back down, so I stopped using it. Anyway, I really just wanted to say that there are some good meds out there that don't seem to have much downside (other than cost if you're uninsured). You probably ought to talk to an internist about it.

Do you take any stimulants. I mean anything (caffeine, nicotine, amphetamines, ritalin, wellbutrin, modafinil, ephedrine, OTC thermogenic/fat burners etc. etc.) any of these could increase your BP and heart rate. Some people are more sensitive than others.

Absolutely none. It seems to be genetic. I just found out my mom has been on BP meds since her mid-twenties and her mom died young from a heart attack. The only supps I take are ortho-core (multi), omega-3, and curcumin. I'm also a vegetarian except for fish occasionally. I run 4 miles 4 times/week. I just started a low-dose beta blocker, and it seems to help. 126 / 75 with a pulse of 44 as of right now. I remember going to the dentist a couple years ago and the dentist took my BP there at like 170/95 or something. The dentist was alarmed, but then took it again at the end of the apt. It was something like 140/85. He said I was probably just nervous about seeing the dentist, but I should keep an eye on it. I told him I had no idea and had never payed much attention to it. I wish I had..

The beta blocker seems to be getting the job done. Any problems with side effects? If so, there are other options. The stuff I used to take was great but pretty expensive. It comes off patent in a couple years though, so it's due to get cheaper. Just make sure you keep an eye on the bp, and between that and your healthy lifestyle, you should be in good shape. You probably ought to make sure you're getting enough D3. 2000 IU/day from an oil-based (gelcap) formulation is a good starting point. A 1,25-OH D3 test is not expensive, and would be a good idea so you know how you react to supplementation. My doctor can order the test, so I presume any doctor could. YMMV of course.

Thanks for the advice, I'll look into it. I guess the beta blocker has mostly worn off for the night. I'm back up to 141 / 83 p 52 as I go to bed. Not really any side effects, except that I can't exercise much when it's in me.


Edit: I just took a Gaba Calm supp. to see if it would do anything. I've read it has trouble crossing the BBB. I'm back to 126 / 72 p 48. I have no idea if it's the Gaba, or if I'm just half asleep though.
