    Seriously, why do you ask ? It is a very important issue, you should not be dealing with a real life situation based on internet information. You may either get overly worried, or assume that things are not that bad, when they may be.

    Low blood pressure is an abnormal condition where a person's blood pressure (the pressure of the blood against the walls of the blood vessels during and after each beat of the heart) is much lower than usual, which can cause symptoms such as dizziness or lightheadedness.


    Low blood pressure is commonly caused by drugs such as the following

    Medications used for surgery
    Anti-anxiety agents
    Treatment for high blood pressure
    Diuretics
    Heart medicines
    Some antidepressants
    Narcotic analgesics
    Alcohol


    Home Care
    Follow prescribed therapy. Bed rest and assistance with daily activities as needed until the condition improves.


    Call your health care provider if Return to top

    Call your health care provider if there is any sudden drop in blood pressure that causes dizziness or fainting spells. Call an ambulance and begin CPR if someone is unconscious.
    You notice black or maroon stools
    You experience any of the following:
    Chest pain
    Shortness of breath
    Irregular heartbeat
    Fever higher than 101 degrees
    Headache
    Stiff neck
    Severe upper back pain
    Cough with phlegm
    Prolonged diarrhea or vomiting
    Inability to eat or drink
    Burning with urination
    Foul-smelling urine
    Your low blood pressure or dizziness/fainting spells started one or two days after you began taking a new drug.

    If you are less cheerful Gemby it is probably because you are worrying unecessary about this. At your age you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Your body is just changing. Now cheer up.
