Foods won't help your blood pressure but if you are anaemic then you need iron supplements. Foods which contain iron are:- Red meat, green leaf vegetables, fortified breakfast cereal, bran, soybean, spinach, red kidney beans, rice, raisins, and prunes. Low BP is only ever a problem if you are symptomatic with dizziness etc. If not then low blood pressure is never a problem, it's a normal healthy variant and you are at a significantly lower stroke risk.

I am a 49 year old woman, vit. D deficient and have developed a 2 inch. long dent in the top of my head center and slightly to the right about 1/8 to 1/4 inch deep, first noticed about 3 weeks ago. No pain. sometimes it does not feel as deep. I take RX 50,000 units of Vit. D one time per week. No head injury, not dehydrated. I have not been diagnosed with Osteoporosis. The only RX meds I take are the vit. D, Metoprolol, and Omeprazole other than that I take ASA 81mg and vitamins. Last blood work was about 3 months ago which was all normal. I have occasional dizziness, ( which is not new) and had a TIA about 10 years ago. What could this be.

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.
