Brief Answer:
Dont worry you will be fine

Detailed Answer:
Hello Maam

I can understand your concern and i would like to tell you that dont worry you will be alright.

You just need to take few precaution like do not drive for next 12 hrs or do any heavy work and most importantly keep monitoring your bp for the next 6 hours very hourly. If it goes below 100/60 mmHg then take a bit extra amount of salt, a cup of coffee and drink more water and relax in bed with feet slightly raised.

Rest everything will be fine. Hope this information will relieve your worries.

Kind Regards
