Hello,

Brief Answer: Your husband has symptoms and signs of low blood pressure that needs treatment.
Explanation: My opinion is that low blood pressure accompanied by symptoms and signs like sweating and dizziness is important to deal with. First measures to increase blood pressure to normal readings is essential. Then investigations to determine the cause is important. Angiogram with a coronary artery disease may be a cause of low blood pressure if there are chest pain symptoms. Fifty percent of blockage is a general term that needs more details. I suggest my patients the following; good hydration, revise treatment and doses and modify accordingly.
Conclusion: I suggest you check with your physician.



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

Regards,
Dr. Mahmmad Gamal
