Customer Question

Hi doc quick question.. It's not about me , it's for my sister.. She checked her BP earlier today and said it was 98/47 with HR of around 62.. She said she didn't feel unwell or anything .. She said she's anaemic, could this be why it's low?

Grasshopper--is that a usual range for her BP and HR?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't know doc.. I don't think she has ever had it checked before.. Anyway she will be seeing her GP about it.. I'd like to ask u question about a tiny little brown mark on my arm, it's probably alwYs been there but never noticed it before.. It's only a couple of mm in size.. It's brown pigmentation .. Would you need a pic uploading?

Looks totally benign grasshopper. Nothing to worry about

As for your sister, no anemia wouldn't account for the numbers but they may be perfectly normal for her

Ok cool .. Anyway attaching another pic of similar pigmentation further up my arm which I know for sure has been there for quite a while so I know that's nothing to worry about.. Can u just confirm that they are the same? Also can pigmentations suddenly appear on the skin?
