Customer Question

Have been experiencing low blood pressure for the last couple weeks. 94/59,107/67,90/64, and 30 minutes ago 76/51 are the recent readings. Do I need to go into ER? Can my wife drive me there?

Hi,

As per your description,if you feel lightheadedness,confusion,weakness then you should see your doctor or visit ER.

Firstly your anti-hypertensive medicine dosage should be adjusted.

And you have to maintain a good hydration along with small frequent meals at regular intervals.

You can currently take small amount of salt mixed in water which can help you in increasing your blood pressure.

It's also good to make an appointment with your doctor and undergo blood work and CT scan abdomen to rule out underlying cause of unexplained weight loss.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
