Low blood pressure is caused by several things. Obviously, low blood volume and that needs clinical investigation. We would need to check your hematocrit (the number of blood cells compared to the volume) and the hemoglobin and red blood cell count. We would also need a urinalysis to determine the specific gravity as the kidneys may be involved. There are also hormonal secretions that may reduce the pressure...adrenal glands are responsible for maintain pressure, and the thyroid gland may also be involved. Fixing it depends on the cause. The cause requires a physician. Some individuals tend to have a normal low blood pressure or others may develop postural hypotension.

I take exforge for high bp---lately the problem is more low bp.I feel a burning sensation traveling up my neck- usually after eating or in very hot weather. The range of low bp is in the area of 90/60 or 84/60 with a pulse of 90 or higher. I m 64 years old and have asthma . I take symicort and rarely albuterol for those symptoms.
