Owning a pet is helpful in reducing stress,loneliness and helps in longevity of life and good health of the owners.It is also been found helpful in reducing the obesity and hypertension due to increased physical activity like walks involved in taking care of a dog.The cause of further lowering a already low blood pressure should not be attributed to owning a dog.There would perhaps be a medical reason behind this which needs to be looked for.A thorough physical examination and subsequent investigations based on the findings of the physical examination will help pinpoint the cause.The opinion of a physician or a Cardiologist may be sought if the diagnosis is difficult to reach.A low blood pressure is not a disease,but the sign of some disorder ,it may occur normally in some people.

3 months ago i was diagnosed with h.pylori and treated for it. 2 weeks ago when my bp was 80/49 and i was in emergency. they told me that i probably have a bacteria infection. didn't prescribe antibiotics, i ended up in walkin clinic last week the dr said that it's probably campybacter pylori and he perscribed a week of antibiotics. i've been on it for 2 days and i feel better. at the hospital they didn't test my stool for the infection. they wanted too but i was too sick to get up to go the bathroom and when i did it had urine in it so they couldn't test it, and they decided to discharge me and they said i should be ok within a week but i wasn't so i ended up in a walkin in clinic the dr there didnt test my stool either but he asssumed that i have campylobacter pylori infection after a physical examination. however this is the first time that i've ended up in hospital with sucha diahhrea. last may my doctor requested a 48 hour holter monitor test for me due to the palpitations i was having and the result was that my heart skips a bit, and it's a healthy heart. should i get my heart checked again?

i just saw my family doctor. i told him i'll take my last dose co-ciprofoxacin tomorrow night (a walk in clinic doctor perscribed it). and family dr told me that if my diaharrhea doesn't go away within a month to go back to him ( he probably would request a holter monitor test for me then or send me to a cardiologist) he told me to take probiotic. i started taking the probiotic today but it's been a week that i've been on co ciprofloxacin does this put me at risk for the post viral hypotension syndrome? i mean did i start taking the probiotic late? i've been told that this antibiotic apparently kills some bacteria that the body needs and that's why i'm still having stomach flu after being on it for almost a week and my dr told me to take the probiotic to replace the needed bacteria. but i started taking the probiotic 6 days after i started taking the co-ciprofloxacin, am i at risk for the post viral hypotension syndrome?
