A functional democracy requires an educated population and a good investigative press. When these are weakened (look at both of these institutions now vs 1980 and again vs 1950!), those in power can run amok. Now, we have a court that has given corporations human rights (figure that out!) and the power to buy and … Read more
I also thought mine was blood glucose initially and then I did a full set of vitals during an episode too! Glad to know I am following in educated footsteps!
Thanks. I have gotten the t3 and t4 tests also and keep close watch on that. My brother also has MS and I know heat and cold bother him, but I never heard him mention blood pressure drops. They have finally figured out that fibromyalgia is also a nervous system sydrome, rather than an arthritic … Read more
Thanks for your feedback. I am heading out after I get done on this page to check out vasavagal syncope episodes.
Thank you! This is by far the best answer. I run a natural low body temp and have dehydration issues. I also have experimented with several meds for fibromyalgia which may have exaggerated the problem. Time will tell. Sadly, I visit the doctor regularly but most of what he knows about fibro he has learned … Read more
Thanks all. I just discovered all of these answers. I am 59 (almost unbelievably!!), I take synthroid for hypothyroid, which is tested regularly, and a half dose of cymbalta for fibromyalgia - I cannot tolerate a full dose. It makes me too dopey and I don't need any help in that area. My blood pressure … Read more
You state you are on thyroid medicine. This happens to me when my thyroid is hypo. I have my thyroid monitored monthly and have to adjust my dose regularly. You do not say how old you are or if you have diabetes both can be less serious and common factors of blood pressure dropping. If … Read more
You share very little information about yourself. One thing you haven't mentioned is HOW you know your blood pressure is dropping. What are you measuring it with? In my experience (I'm not a doctor) I've seen meds do this type of thing. Some meds that lower blood pressure are prescribed for other illnesses or conditions. … Read more
You need to get to a doctor as soon as you can. A significant drop in blood pressure can be a sign of something more serious going on in the body. You shouldn't waste time about going, and you should have someone take you, because you don't want it to happen while you are driving, … Read more

- Low or high body temperature.
- Blood loss due to bleeding
- Diseases of heart muscles leading to heart failure
- Anaphylactoid reactions
- Blood infection
- Side effects of some … Read more
This happens to me as well. I am 28 my normal BP is 90/60's and my pressure will drop to 30's/60's (I am an RN so I check it at work as this is where I am when it has happened...I used to think it was my blood glucose until I did a full set … Read more
In the past three months, I have collapsed on two occasions from a sudden drop in blood pressure. Ex. When I woke up, my BP was 58/34. Normally, I am normal to high bp levels. The doctors are stumped. I have no other symptoms and after 24 hours, I have normal BP but am exhausted for … Read more
