What cause low blood pressure? What are its symptoms?

Dubious idea: This is a "pop" diagnosis especially in parts of europe, and some physicians believe in it; it's used to explain a variety of symptoms (including folks I suspect are somatizing / just unhappy); it's not mainstream, and if somebody's symptomatic, I'd look for some other cause. The healthy heart keeps pressure just adequate to perfuse the body; "low" shouldn't be a problem. ...Read more
