Yes: Low blood pressure may commonly cause fatigue. It also may cause dizziness or lightheadedness. Sometimes this is severe enough to cause someone to pass out. It is less likely to cause chest discomfort.

Blood pressure: If your body is conditioned to the low pressure, no. If the low pressure is a new change, then maybe.
