Blood Pressure

Randomish thread. When you last had your blood pressure taken, what was it? I'm told it's supposed to be your age plus 100 over about 80. Mine however was 106 over 64, but that could possibly be because I'm quite fit. What would you reckon is normalish? And what's yours?

    i'm usually told my blood pressure is a bit low, but not drastically.

    apparently is because i never used to eat properly.

    i also get that thing to do with your blood pressure where, if you stand up too fast, you pass out.

    fun stuff.

    My BP was last measured at 80/60 but that was due to the hot weather during the summer. Can't remember what it usually is. Sometimes you have to take multiple readings, because a lot of people get 'white coat hypertension' which makes their BP higher than normal because they're nervous of being in that sort of setting. :)

    Mines usually like 100/80 something, but the last time I had my blood pressure taken it was on the borderline of having high blood pressure, but that only happens once and a while, especially if I'm really nervous or if I'm a bit sick and such and it usually seems to be a bit high if I'm sick.
