Increase your salt and fluid intake and see if it makes any difference - make sure you are getting enough electrolytes. A low blood pressure per se is not necessarily dangerous in an otherwise healthy individual. Some people walk around with a systolic blood pressure of 85 every day and do well. In truth it sounds like you are getting de-hydrated. The question is why? If there is no obvious answer then it may make sense to make an appointment to discuss it with your medical provider.

my boyfriend of 55 years old has been complaining of being very light headed and dizzy when her turns over in bed or get up too fast and he also said his toes (middle to little) feel numb. This has been going on for a about a week now. As far as I know he has not other medical problems. Should I be worried? Also he does not like to go to the doctors unless its life threating..
I have occasional lightheadness when sitting and generally feel run down. Occasionally wake up after 4 hours of sleep and can t go back to sleep. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism several years ago but am on lowest dose of medication. I have blood pressure readings in the 140s/90s. Recently discovered there is a distant family history of hypoglycemia. I have a check up scheduled in 4 weeks. Should I see a doctor sooner?
Ive had bronchitis since Friday. Chest is clearing now although I am still wheezing and feeling thick in one place i my right lung which traditionally is the same part that feels sore when I smoke (ex/heavy smoker who, for the last few years has smoked intermittently, around 1 or 2 a day). Haven t smoked for two weeks. I am sore under my right arm and side of right breast. Still congested in my right sinuses and light headed and lacking energy, occasional pain in diaphragm but that could be acid reflux or it could be the bronchitis. Should I visit my doctor?
My mom has spinal stenosis and mitro valve prolapse. She is picking up fluid her stomach and can t sleep at night because she gets sharp muscle spasms all over her body. She also has aches in her legs when she walks (she uses a walker). She s taking Lisinoprol, Metoprolol, digoxin, lasix, a baby aspirin, coumadin, folic acid and a multivitamin and liquid potassium from her drs. Her kidney and liver function are fine and the cardiologist said her stomach fluid has nothing to do with her heart. And the gastro dr said it has nothing to do with that. Oh, her bun/creatine numbers are a little off b/c when she was in the hospital with heart failure they put a catheter in and she lost 19 lbs in fluid in 3 days back in September. And she s on a 60 oz fluid restriction with 40 mg lasix. It seems like nobody has a clue what is causing this. Any thoughts?

I walked upstairs and was slightly out of breath. I sat down and noticed my heart rate was elevated but no pain or discomfort. I then noticed I could see my heart rate in my eyes as it caused them to pulse. I'm just wondering if that is a problem.
