No diabetes, high cholesterol or heart burn, or medical illinesses. I had rather high blood pressure when I drank a LOT of coffee (10 cups a day produced >150/85). I have been drinking 1 cup a day for the last 2 years.

Thanks for your details. Your symptoms can be due to low blood pressure but I will advise you to have detail evaluation done which can also responsible for these symptoms. The following important possibilities like valvular heart disease, thyroid disorders, anemia should be investigated. I will suggest you to see Internist for complete evaluation and have important tests like EKGs, heart echo, thyroid profile, complete blood count. I can give possibilities and show right direction here.
