Low Blood Pressure
I have COPD and quit smoking 4 years ago.  I recently went to a pain doctor for something unrelated and was told my blood pressure was low 91/58.  In all of my previous doctors visists it was close to normal or a little high.  I take, Plendit, Cozaar and Atenonol.  Because of the low blood pressure they would not give me any conscious sedation during a precedure.  I was scared to death and my blood pressure dropped to 84/48.  Since then my doctor has taken me off of Plendil and my pressure still remains low.  I am occasionally able to get the systolic up but the diastolic won''t go above 58 or 64.  Does anyone have any idea why the diastolic would stay so low or how to get it back up?
