I have normal blood pressure.
Because I have protein in my urine my doctor pushes blood pressure medicine. I hate feeling like I have low blood pressure

Hello, I'm kind of curious and maybe you can answer this question for me, when your doctor noticed that you had protein in your urine, aka Proteinuria, was he\she looking for possible kidney damage or was test ordered for such or something else ?

These might help you understand his concern. If your pressure is too low, then by all means talk to him soon and discuss your options.
