I would have thought that low blood pressure and eating disorders go together. I recently found my blood pressure to be 132/108 with an irregular heatbeat which is seriously high for me (i always had low bp) im wondering if my bp sessions lately have caused this? I only purge at weekends but since i started councelling i purged every day last week. Im back to restricion this week though. Its kinda frightening me.

I have low blood pressure and a high heart rate even though I know most with anorexia have a low blood pressure and a low heart rate. I’m wondering why this is.

I guess this this normal in these days. If you are leaving in a country where weather is too hot. Then don't worry about this.

Low potassium can be correlated with high blood pressure I think... and given the purging your potassium could potentially have dropped

Alternating high and low bp is never a good sign in anyone. Your system is struggling.
