Why i have fast heart beat and low BP ?

i dont eat a lot of certain types of food and i m not overweight. my fast heart beat is not because of caffeine because i dont have caffeine and i dont have a lot of salt. every time i do a fast movement i get a head rush and i get blackouts. ive seen my doctor for my fast heart beat and he says i have anxiety probs but i know i dont because im such a calm and relaxed person. i try to have sweet things when my blood pressure drops a lot but if i constantly have sweet things i will just get fat. so does anyone know why my heart beats fast and my blood pressures always low? i forgot to say i do have anemia but an anemic person doesnt get a head rush EVERY time they do a fast movement.

One common cause of a low blood pressure with high pulse rate is dehydration. The thing is a person needs to know what is your heart rate? What is your BP? In nursing you do a test checking your BP lying down, sitting, and then standing up....a variation of 15 or more points would indicate you are dehydrated. You can get a head rush from getting up too quickly if you are hypotensive (low blood pressure). Sweets aren't going to affect your blood pressure. Try increasing your fluid intake, have something like Gatorade rain for the electrolytes and then see how you feel. Regarding stress and would be amazed at the symptoms a person can have from these conditions, all you have to do is research to see.
