Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

His symptoms could be related to low blood pressure. For this reason, the first thing to do is to check blood pressure values and a complete blood count for anemia. In the meantime, I would recommend taking plenty of water in order to avoid dehydration and increase salt intake in case of low blood pressure values.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
