Hi, I was wondering if anyone had issues with high to very high blood pressure before you were diagnosed. I have been having trouble with high blood pressure for about six months. one time it sent me into a hypertensive crisis with an ambulance ride to the ER. It is now under control with meds. Just wondering if anyone had this as a symptom. Thanks so much for all your kind responses.

To be honest with you my blood pressure was actually low 110/68. I am 61 years old and that isreally a little low for a person that age. The drs. will say it great. It would be if I was 20 again. John

May I ask what your size is John...not specific weight, but if you are a large man...small...medium? My blood pressure has always been below normal, but doc always says thats "good". He once mentioned that my size had alot to do with it being low. Mine always runs around 110/65...pretty same as yours.

Usually womens bp runs a little lower than a mans. I am 5' 10" 185 lbs. My bp pressure was higher when I was 30 than it is now. It ran around 125/80 back then. John

Mine runs low too generally close to the same. I do however take a very low dose blood pressure pill for migraines. I am heavier now than I have ever really been (except) when I was doing chemo. My heaviest was 135, now been fairly consistent 125-128.

When I started chemo I was at 105. Now when my weight gets down to 120 I start paying attention to my body.
