My blood pressure drops like a rock very easily. For example, when cramping from a stomach virus, I ve passed out before trying to get to the bathroom; then I get a headache, cold sweats, and just all over feel like i m dying. My husband says my pulse becomes very faint. Is there any way to stop it when i feeling this happening? I know this isn t a heart disease per se, but wasn t sure of a better category. I know this isn t a heart disease per se, but wasn t sure of a better category. My dr. ran a bunch of tests; my heart is great, but my husband also feels it s a vagal response. He s a paramedic, and takes care of me after the fact--but I d rather stop it early. Hadn t thought of alternative therapies. Thanks for the link; this is exactly what I experience. I m not on any meds, so it s not anything like that. And thanks for the prayers, Virginia. I appreciate them.
