Any of you ever have your BP drop unusually low?

Hi everyone I hope everyone is doing o.k & had a nice weekend (i worked all weekend ). A question : Any of you ever had your BP drop real low? What were your symptoms & did you call your dr. about it?
I felt very nauseous (sp.?) last night & this morning & also was VERY dizzy (worse when standing) . I took my BP at work, we have a pharmacy there, & it was like 20 points below normal. Which is scary because my BP is always "borderline" high. I went home & slept for almost 2 hrs & now i feel o.k. but it was scary. I really dont know what to think of it- i havent started any new meds. Would just like to know if any of you out there have experienced this. Thanks ladies!!

Low blood preassure

Hello Susan,
My BP is always low. I too have experienced dizziness. This was due to me being a anemic. I was losing so much blood from having fibroids that My blood count was down to nothing. You may want to have the doctor check your blood count.

All the best to you,
Dee

Susan,
My father has a low BP disease it is call Shy Draggers. He does get very dizzy with it too. Sometimes his BP jumps to stroke level and then bottoms out. It has taken alot out of him. The other day at the hosp. mine was 90/60 which is pretty low but I didn't get dizzy or anything. The only other time mine went really low 70/40 was when I had a large hematoma. I wish I could help more. Maybe you need to go see your GP and tell him/her what it going on.
Huggs and Prayers,

Mine's normally low..

So I don't know if that helps you or not. If I have 120/80 I'm having some kind of major problem or pain. Mine normally runs around 80/60 but has dropped as low as 43/20 (yes they put me on my head).

Susan,

One possibility to check out is whether you might have had a vasovagal episode. (although BP 20 pts below normal doesn't sound like it). When you get vasovagal your BP will drop so low that you will faint (once you are horizontal, either on the floor or bed, your BP will recover and you regain consciousness). Nausea frequently accompanies this, along with sweating.

Vasovagal can occur for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it's a reaction to pain or fear; sometimes it occurs because of dehydration or after eating too much. President Bush had it recently: when he choked on that pretzel, the vasovagal nerve was activated- his BP dropped really low, he passed out, but revived when he hit the floor.

I'm not saying you had this, it's only one possibility. I don't know how long ago you had your surgery- if it's been a month or less, dizziness can occur. I would give your doctor a call. hope you are feeling better.
