Hi there I am a 20 year old female and I smoke continuous marijuana poppers. Lately it has gotten really bad where I would smoke 10-15 a day. I have also had low blood pressure for many years before I had even started poppers. Now that I smoke them I've noticed my low blood pressure is really taking its tole on my everyday life; I constantly feel the need to lay down or sit down. My energy level has plumeted.
I was wondering if I continue my use of marijuana poppers, would it worsen my low blood pressure condition? If so, what is the worse it could lead too?

You are right in wondering if the marijuana can worsen your low blood pressure problem. Marijuana relaxes the smooth muscles found in the walls of blood vessels. This causes the blood pressure to fall. So, if you are already having low blood pressure, you can expect it to worsen with...

Normal blood pressure is generally considered to be greater than 90/60 and less than a hypertensive.

Symptons= raynauds, digital ulceration, sclerodactyly, low persistent chest pain/arrhythmia, significant reduction of lung function, dyspnea, paresthesia, reflux, hypotension. Points to scleroderma (systemic), but not clear about hypotension fitting into this. Could it be anything else? Can you tell me prognosis once it goes systemic? Just need to know stats regarding longevity (realize docs can squeeze a few more months to years if the pateint serves as a human clinical trial guinea pig, but not going that route). Thanks.

My coworker has low blood pressure and took aspirin.

This may or may not be unrelated, but about 20 minutes ago she almost passed out, made it to a chair and then laid down and isn't able to get up. she says she feels like her body weighs a ton (she's 115 max).

Her husband is on his way, but what should he do? What should WE do?
Dear Ma'm
1. It is unlikely to be related to aspirin intake and may be related to the cause of her low blood pressure.
2. Do not let her stand. Make her recumbent and take her to ER as soon as possible.
