Customer Question
I have high blood pressure...
I have high blood pressure and take medication for it. Once in a great while ( maybe 3 times a year) my blood pressure will drop so low I will collapse on the floor, stay conscious but feel death is very close. I have an appointment (04-03-2018) at the VA in Iowa City with a neurologist but don't expect much from them. I am a 62 year old man with an average BP of 150/88.
