Try getting your machine caliberated, sometimes due to lack of caliberation this can happen. And ideally there should be a gap of 5-10 mins between consecutive BP readings.

Your lungs can have about 6 liters of air in them while you ordinarily take in only 3 to 3.5 liters only. Practice deep inhalations and gradual exhalations like they do in Pranayam. Deep breathing opens up the idle rooms or air spaces in the lungs so that you can inhale more air inside. That will enable larger chest expansion after some time.

Hi. Blood pressure is something that keeps fluctuating. This shows that your body is capable of increasing bp when required and normalize it when required. So nothing to worry about this. Bp problem is when your bp is continuously high. Take care.

Hi For low bp problem, age -40, gender -female, what should be do?

There is no medicine for low bp. The only advice is to take salty food, and lots of fluids, which would increase the bp.
