I find that my BP has been on the low end for days. Readings like 104/67 and 102/65. Pulse around 70-75. But when my BP is high (168/98) right now and my pulse is 58. Is that kinda low for a pulse.? I'm trying to believe I'm ok but I feel so so dizzy. If I try to stand it'll feel like I'm on a boat and the floor isn't steady. I do have a panic disorder which doesn't make things any better. Should I be concerned about the low BP or the low pulse, or what. :/ feeling very alone & confused & scared. cry cry

BP is normal. What medications are you on? Some medications can cause low BUT normal heart rates. Your dizzyness can be either a side effect of your medications or just needing a med ajustment. Make an appointment with your PCP to go over your meds
