The ONE organ responsible for high blood pressure.
What Makes Low Blood Pressure Dangerous
A sudden drop in blood pressure can be dangerous. A change of just 20 mm Hg, or a drop from 110 mm Hg systolic to 90 mm Hg systolic, for example, can cause dizziness and fainting. And large drops, such as those caused by uncontrolled bleeding, severe infections or allergic reactions, can be life-threatening. Can low blood pressure cause a stroke? A less common cause of ischemic stroke is blood pressure that is too low (hypotension), which reduces blood flow to the brain. This usually happens with narrowed or diseased arteries. What are the symptoms of low blood pressure?
- dizziness or photophobia
- difficulties with concentration
- blurred vision
- Pale, moist skin
- fast, shallow breathing
- drinking more liquids
- changing the way you sit or stand
- implement dietary changes
- wearing compression stockings
- Doctors may also recommend changing certain medications, such as adjusting high blood pressure medications, if they lead to dangerously low blood pressure.
