Dangers of low blood pressure
Wasnt sure if I where suposed to pos this in here or steroid forum, but I decided to post on this forum.
If any doc or other knowelegable member could respond to this I would be very gratefull.
I naturaly have low blood pressure, its the same with my sister. My dad on the other hand has very high blood pressure and the same with my half sisters(same dad different mom). So it seems like heart problems runs in the family.
I never realy considered if low blood pressure is dangerous. But for some reason I have gotten a bit paranoid lately. Today I messured my blood pressure twice(with one of those wrist automated blood pressure things) and first I got it to 107/53 and the second time to 106/45. usualy my blood pressure is around 115-120/55-60 but when I get on cycle I usualy get lower blood pressure. But today is the lowest blood pressure I have ever messured on myself. I also easily get numb legs and arms nowdays(begun last week) and I get pretty dizzy sometimes when doing exercises like squat. Especialy during warmup sets.
The cycle I am running is
and Im on my 8th day of the cycle. I have also gained around 10 pounds in the last week. All of those things should make my blood pressure go up but instead it has gone down
Is this dangerous in any way?
Can low blood pressure be a sign of any kind of heart problems I might have without knowing it?

Let me ask you a few questions...
1) Lie down...and then go to a seated position rapidly...do you feel dizzy, faint?
2) How old are you?
3) Have you been otherwise healthy with this relaltively low BP...honestly your systolic (top number) is beautiful it seems though that your diastolic (bottom number) is relatively low.
I have a philosophy...if its not broken don't fix it. By this I mean if you are 30 and have led a healthy life with this bp...I see no reason why you should be alarmed. However, if you seem to get dizzy often...have fainting spells, or other such problems you might want to have a quick diagnostic run at your local cardiologist.

thanks for the responses bro's. I guess Il stopp worry about it and continue to regular check bp.

I wish I had a problem with low blood pressure.
Mine is the exact opposite, sky high.

I hate giving such advice over the internet, as really the only way to truly be safe is to go to a doctor in person. However, it seems to me you are otherwise a healthy individual. If you notice the dizzyness/blacking out spells or any of those symptoms you mentioned progressing (ie getting worse) 100% you sure be getting in contact with a cardiologist. As for now, its not a rush, but you might consider going down to the doc. at your convenience.
