Need help again, blood pressure haven't slept in a few days.

I know this is silly but my anxiety is up and it's health related, blood pressure going too low and I can't fall asleep, I actually get scared that I wont wake up.

During the day my BP is 120 over 80 or slightly lower, but at night when I go to lay down, my BP is 90 over 50, this is lying down and relaxed, now of course normal is 90 over 60 and above so with that I'm hypo at night, is this normal? Tried looking online for an answer and found nothing, only that we dip at night.

Trying to see if you all have seen similar things? My pulse is in the low 60s, to make this funny, and to give you all a laugh, I'm freaking out because I lost 80 pounds, quit smoking and quit caffeine this year alone, so maybe I've always been this low but I'm Just now noticing it lol.

My sister laughed and said I'm freaking out because I found out I'm healthy lol wont lie I want to smoke just to bring it back up lol.

I'm a 31 year old male.

Hi Armyguy, instead of wanting to smoke to bring up the b/p, why not have a cup of bouillon soup which will bring your pressure up some. I have had 90/48 a couple times and it freaked me out enough that it brought my pressure back up lol. My daughter (anorexic) goes into undetectable b/ps even at her doctor's office. They always bring her a cup of chicken bouillon soup because her electrolytes are off (potassium as well as sodium)

Worth a try. You know your sister may be very right in saying you are healthy with quitting smoking, no caffeine and losing that much weight. That alone would bring down your pressure equivalent to an athlete who has low readings. Kidding aside, I hope you do get some sleep tonight. Take care.

Your sister is right lol! I've said this before but if you don't believe me, look at this.

You will find that your blood pressure readings are ideal. As is your pulse rate in the low 60s.

A normal resting heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats a minute. Generally, a lower heart rate at rest implies more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness. For example, a well-trained athlete might have a normal resting heart rate closer to 40 beats a minute.

Hope this helps :-)

Thanks, I know it's anxiety but does it suck. Anxiety I think is causing a lot of this but the tachycardia after I eat. That I have no answer for.


Hi Armyguy, good luck tomorrow on your test. Let us know how you do.

Have you thought about getting rid of your b.p. monitor? I think by constantly checking it you are feeding the anxiety...


Yea I got rid of it but my BP is great I use it just for the pulse thing. My pulse is too crazy, seen my videos?
