My son is 16 yrs old. for the past 2 weeks he had been complaining about a slight headache and being tired; today the school nurse called and told me to come pick him up, his BP was only 90/60. i took him straight to the dr. there they got 2 more LOWER readings and one just about the same as earlier in the day. going for xray to look for enlargement of his heart, they did blood work and an EKG. They are going to wait for results before they call the childrens hospital. Has anyone ever dealt with this? I am in awe my son had ADHD. Is this normal?
