Question
Posted by: Mary | 2005/07/19

unstable blood pressure defined as low

My blood pressure is 144 over 71, pulse rate 68. Should I use any treatment. I'm using Eltroxin for underactive thyroid gland.
What about these terrible headaches, is it normal.

Mary, if it stays like that you should consider a mild blood pressure tablet (we prefer the blood pressure to be below 135/85). Terrible headaches are never normal, but I doubt that it is due to your slightly elevated blood pressure. Good luck.
