Detailed Answer:

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I would explain that her blood pressure values are low. This could explain the dizziness and nausea.

Low blood pressure does not usually indicate a blood pressure problem. It is commonly related to different metabolic disorders (dehydration, chronic anemia, electrolyte imbalance, etc.).

For this reason, I would recommend consulting with her doctor for a physical exam and some tests:

- a resting ECG
- complete blood count
- blood electrolytes
- a urine analysis.

In the meantime, I recommend putting her to rest and avoid physical activity. Increasing salt and fluids intake (water, juices) would help stay well hydrated and raise her blood pressure values. A coffee would also help.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri
