Unhappy Low water pressure in upstairs bathroom

At the present time, we are having a problem with the hot water pressure in our upstairs bathtub. The pressure is fine in the sink (same bathroom), however it barely comes out in the tub. Could the faucet be going bad in the tub and cause the water pressure to be low? Any help or advise will be greatly appreciated.

Well, you could either have trash in the valve, which requires turning the water off, taking the valve apart and cleaning it out, or you could have very old piping that is beginning to rust shut and needs to be replaced... What kind of pipe is run in your house...

Unhappy Plumbing problem con't

Thank you for your reply.....our house is 101 years old and I'm unsure of what the pipes are in our house. But, I think that from the age of our house, you'll probably know what type of pipes we have.

Um yeah, at 101 years old, you probably have wooden water pipes with some type of aqueduct system.... ...

But seriously, you likely have galvanized pipes and they are virtually certain to be rusted nearly shut at this point... The only real solution is to replace the pipes as you are able...
