Blood pressure is measured using a blood pressure monitor, and it varies between different individuals. Blood pressure can also change during the day and in different situations. If you have low blood pressure, it is more common for you to experience a drop in blood pressure. It can result in symptoms such as dizziness, feeling faint or, in more serious cases, actually fainting. These symptoms sometimes occur when you change position from sitting to standing. Generally speaking, low blood pressure is harmless and rarely requires treatment.

The causes of low blood pressure

Low blood pressure is common and is often associated with age. It can also be caused by a lack of fluid or salt. Other possible causes include heart disease such as reduced pump function in heart failure or neurological diseases such as Parkinson's disease. Another possible cause of low blood pressure is reduced production of the hormone cortisol from the adrenal cortex. These conditions can also cause symptoms such as fatigue, nausea, vomiting and patchy skin changes. It is worth noting that some medicines can also lead to low blood pressure.

Symptoms of low blood pressure may include

  • When the blood pressure drops quickly, it can result in dizziness.
  • You may feel weak and lack energy.
  • Low blood pressure can sometimes cause nausea.
  • The feeling of fainting can occur with low blood pressure.
  • The body's attempt to increase blood flow can be expressed by palpitations.
