I don`t think the two go hand in hand, but it is possible to have both. When the blood pressure is not sufficient to deliver enough blood to the organs of the body, the organs do not work properly and may be permanently damaged. For example, if insufficient blood flows to the brain, brain cells do not receive enough oxygen and nutrients, and a person can feel lightheaded, dizzy, or even faint. If you or someone you know has symtems see a Dr.

my son has been suffering from low blood pressure for about 2 weeks. He can t find what is causing it. It is 89/70, 90/70, sometimes maybe 101/70. He does have depression and take other meds magnesia Oxide 400mg (on his own not prescribed), Zolpidem tartrate(ambien) perscribed, mirtazapine 15mg cyclobenatrine(muscle relaxer) Hcl 10mg, Hydrozine, hcl 25mg 3 times a day, omprazole 20mg Would a combination of these meds cause his pressure to lower his pressure. The Dr. says she is going to refer in to a cardiologist. Please respond. Thank you. J.R.

My resting blood pressure is 111/66 with a pulse of 82. I am having symptoms of great fatigue, weakness, dizziness, nausea when I lay down, losing my balance, difficulty focusing. I am on meds for depression, and saw my psychiatrist yesterday and he said I probably don t need more meds, but he wanted me to have my blood pressure checked. My doctor is unavailable for a couple days, and I used my mother-in-law s gadget to determine these numbers.

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
