I forgot to mention my bp was 115/80! I have never had it that low before! Does this not mabye point to the heart problem as opposed to the thyroid problem, given that I am seriously unfit, i.e. this should be a bp for someone who is fit and not someone like me who is grossly unfit (which I plan to change - I am trying to join Walk For Life but have to wait for my feet to get better!)? When I went for my blood test on 09/03 it was 135/80. Is this substantial drop so soon a good thing or a bad thing given that I have not been excersing?


I am taking Coversyl & Coversyl Plus.

Hi Anxious
Yes low BP could be a sign of a heart problem - but it is not abnormally low - don't worry about this.
