The problem is: My sistolic and diastolic blood pressure levels are always normal, BUT, sometimes they are very close. I've been told by cardiac patients that close numbers are bad. I told the doctor once I registered 100/80 but he didn't say anything, he just gave me exams to do, which came alright. Today, once again, I had a gap of 25 (103/78) and 80bpm. I researched and they say a gap of 40 is normal and above 60 is bad, but not much information about what I should do when it is low.
Context: I've had "heart" pain for a few years, I'm 26, but all my exams are alright. I've done even a 24h Holter twice, both were alright, but coincidentally, both ended up being in days in which I didn't feel anything, so I don't know if I was just unlucky to do it in those days.
I've been measuring Blood Pressure every time I feel something wrong. Sometimes, it gives me the arrhythmia sign, but I wonder if it's just anxiety or something. I think I have a bit of Health Anxiety, and I'm going to start treating that next month, but machines don't usually lie and it's hard to separate what I should worry about or not. I mean. Considering I'm young, and my heart looks alright, should I worry about a gap of 20/25? Why didn't the doctor make a big deal when I told him that? What should I do when it happens?
