High Blood Pressure Dizzy Nausea
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

Not taking your meds will lead BP spikes as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Blood pressure last night my dad felt dizzy and blood present was 138 and 100. He has high blood pressure history. What can we do to help lower?
Need to see Dr: If you mean his BP was 138/100, that should not have caused dizziness at that level in someone w/high bp, so should see dr for exam / testing to identify what is cause and to get BP med rx. Home/self-treatment very unlikely to get that range BP to normal levels. Good luck! ...Read more

Been experiencing dizzy spells to the point of passing out when i laugh. Been occurring for the past yr. I do have high blood pressure ?
Laughing syncope: (passing out) is one of a number of autonomically mediated disorders. Often times patients are misdiagnosed as "hypertensive" but this is part of the syndrome and the doctor's well meaning treatment of the hypertension actually results in severe worsening of the autonomic dysfunction and recurrent potentially harmful syncope. You need to be evaluated by an Electrophysiologist & properly diagnosed. ...Read more
