I am having ringing in my ears which actually wakes me up at night. When I awake, my head is throbbing and I feel pretty rough. Someone advised me to start taking my blood pressure just to see what it is when I wake up like this. I found my systolic/diastolic average, over a 1 week period, to be about 150/85 and my pulse rate averaging 50. I also began taking readings before settling down for the night for a week also. The average was 145/77 and the pulse rate 50. I am a 60 year old male, have moderately high cholesterol but am not overweight. Isn't that pulse rate too low? What could be causing this blood pressure, pulse rate, ringing in the ears and headache problem.
