Having just this week been to a heart attack rehab session they had a talk about blood pressure for a healthy person our aim is to get it to 130/80 now if you smoke, drink excessively, overweight or stressed this can greatly chage your blood pressure. I you want it to go up you may want to exercise more like a brisk 30 mins walk daily or aerobic exercise 3 times a week this will greatly up your blood pressure

Hi Crystal88, If you haven't already found a doctor taking new patients, you should. I can tell you that when people who have low b/p readings to begin with, after a meal the blood goes to the digestive tract to help with digestions. This causes your blood pressure to drop even lower. That is why it went from 108/81 before dinner dropping to 98/63 after eating. When the pressure drops it can make you feel a little sick to you stomach and or lightheaded. What you can do until you see your doctor is to have a 12oz glass of water before eating (which will help with the circulation). After eating, sit still and relax for 30-60 minutes giving your stomach a chance to digest the food and re-establish your blood pressure reading. Let us know what your new doctor says. Sounds like you are a healthy weight and eat healthy. Take care Crystal. x

Maybe you could try increasing your salt intake as helps you retain water and ups your blood pressure though do it gradually
