I just diagnosed myself with low BP. How do u bring it back up ?

i just diagnosed myself with low blood pressure. How do u bring it back up? typically my BP is 116 to 120/80. today my roommate took me to wal mart and i checked my bp due to the symptoms i was having. the results were 129/63 119/66 120/66. I drank OJ and a couple of asprins and feel abit better. I still get a little dizzy on sudden movements but especially when i close my eyes sitting or lying down. I m finally keeping down some food.

you cant diagnose yourself unless you are a doc. my advice would be to go see your doctor just in case its something else and if it is low blood pressure your doc will tell you what to do. good luck

I am a 61 y.o. female. Recently left an extremely stressful job for one that I now work 12 hour shifts 3 consecutive nights per week. Multiple stressors at home as well. Past Hx include colon resection (no chemo) 1996, with regular 1 or 2 year follow ups, all normal, Father passed in 1987 - Pulmonary Fibrosis, Mother age 91 has treated High BP, otherwise healthy. Older brother died at age 67 of Pulmonary Fibrosis. Younger brother, age 60, diagnosed 15 months ago with Multi System Atrophy. Maternal GM had a stroke at age 77. About 7 days ago my BP dropped and I almost fell (right leg gave out and I felt weak and whoozy. Normal for me is apprx. 110/72. Now I get readings averaging apprx. 95/61 with Pulse Rate averaging apprx. 100. I went to the ER and they did a urinalysis, EKG, blood work, and gave me IV fluids (normal saline solution). All came back normal. I am generally on a low salt diet for some swelling in my feet, but all labs were normal at that time, as well. I have been doing some tough gardening work in recent days in 100 degree weather, but mostly in the shade. I try to drink water frequently throughout the day. Urine is regular, normal frequency, light yellow color. I ve increased my salt intake today, drinking water and Gatorade and feel a little better, but last BP was 95/61 Heart Rate 102. I also started to take 3 iodine drops in water once a day starting today, as well as Vitamin D, and a baby asprin. I d like some input on what might be the cause of such a sudden drop in BP and what direction to go from here. Thank you.

Hai I was diagnozed with Post Partum Cardio Myopathy after my first delivery in 1998. I was under medication untill 2001 and gradually stopped all medication. I have been doing a ECHO every year and all reports indicate normal. I used have palpitations intermitently in the last 14 years and was adviced of Cardiarone for abour 3 to 4 weeks and gradually stopped.

From last 6 months I was having BP issues of having upto 140/90 and started tablets for BP (Olmeter H). But since last month I have been having the palipitation issues and when I feel headache, my BP in the digital BP meter (Omron) gives EE, error message. No I have increased dosage from doctor (Internal Medicine), as I am away from my cardiologist. The doctor did ECHO and said it as asymmptomatic Arythmia What is the reason of getting it and why the digital BP meter reports error?

IS the approach of following Internal Medicine doctor the right approach or should I flyback to my Cardiologist?

Thanks in advance.
