Brief Answer:
you'd better visit a doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

low blood pressure with symptoms (nausea and - particularly - cold sweats) means that your body can't cope with it. Amlodipine is more likely to be the cause. Loss of body water during aerobic activities may contribute to hypotension.

So in conclusion, you'd better see a doctor in order to exclude more serious events (like cardiovascular ones) and to manage your low blood pressure.

I hope you find my comments helpful!
Kind regards!

Thank you very much! The blood pressure issues haven't changed much, particularly high pulse = 91. I am seeing my internist tomorrow afternoon.
