Low BP: Is simply determined by taking the bp. The problem could be orthostatic problem from poor hydration or even autonomic dysfunction. Your symptoms do indeed correlate with a drop in BP as many of our patients have done so and it correlates. But the real diagnosis has to be searched. Go to your doctor and be examined well. Only then can you be treated well also. Good luck.
