115/75 is considered the new 120/80.

Where does 196/129 fit in?

That's my personal best from 2006.

Mine averages 116/58 resting. Can get up to 160-175/70ish during exercise.
(I have also seen it as low as 90/48 resting..I check it at least once/day)
Yesterday right before a TEE procedure at Kingwood hospital, , it was 119/61. I am not on BP medicines.

I think they change some of these numbers to sell drugs.

Dang man. Might ought to have that checked. Mine has always been around 120/80 or there abouts but pulse will always be over 100......MD put me on a BP med to lower my pulse. Took about 4 months to get dosage adjusted but now runs about 100-105/65-70 most of the time and pulse around 80.

Usually, the easiest way to lower BP is to lose weight. I lost over 50 lbs in the last 18 months.
JLTrent's link explains that.
I also gave up booze in Nov 2015.

I did, made some lifestyle changes and haven't had any issues since then.

Great bp, great pulse, and no irregular hb showing on the machine GB. Good job on the weight reduction. I went to the Dr. mid May for a regular checkup and from the tests everything was between the lines.(trying to keep it that way)

Oh, I get the "irregularly irregular heart beat" all the time. This just wasn't one of them.
(Afib, which is why I had the Watchman device implanted last month)
My pulse rate was quite a bit higher than it usually is, but I had just came in from penning some cows so I can cull a few out and hope to haul them to sale Saturday. It's almost always in the low 60s upper 50s.

What are you taking for HighBP TB?

I was on Metopolol 25mg 1/day for a while in 2016 and a couple months into 2017 while getting the weight off and then didn't need it any longer.

That's what they have me taking GB. When they first put me on it, BP went so low I passed out 5 times. Talked to doctor, he adjusted it and it got better. Then he changed me to the same meds by name but a time release formulation and I can't even tell I take it now. BP doesn't go as low but pulse goes down closer to "normal".

Metoprolol succinate (label may say Succ ER) is the slow release or extended release and Metoprolol Tartrate is the immediate release. I was on the succinate.

'Guidelines' and 'normal' and everything that falls under the bell curve are methods of defining BP.

My BP runs low and my pulse is on the extreme left of the bell curve. According to my doctor, that is my 'normal'. My pulse has been as low as 48. My blood pressure both systolic and diastolic can fall below the median for measured BP. I have some early morning symptoms - really hard to describe. Not dizzy, it is more like feeling like you want to sleep. I recently passed out one morning. Doctor says he has the same characteristics. Low pulse, low morning BP.
