Is it OK for my blood pressure to go as low as 109/50 at 1a.m. after being 117/83 at 9 p.m.?

Is it OK for my blood pressure to go as low as 109/50 at 1a.m. after being 117/83 at 9 p.m.?

Perfectly fine: Blood pressure changes minute to minute depending upon activity, states of mind, position of body. Your blood pressures are fine with either set. The important thing is that YOU FEEL FINE at both of those sets of pressures. If you do then, get some sleep at 1a instead of taking your pressures! You'll feel better in the morning.

Yes when I stand up my blood pressure goes down a little bit and more than one time my blood pressure it was a little bit low but still in the normal average and I feel that the blood goes down to my feet and I feel tired even if I stand up a little bit

Yes when I stand up my blood pressure goes down a little bit and more than one time my blood pressure it was a little bit low but still in the normal average and I feel that the blood goes down to my feet and I feel tired even if I stand up a little bit

Probably normal: Orthostatic (when you stand up) change in your blood pressure is normal. The blood does temporarily pool in your legs and the decrease flow of blood to your heart leads to a temporary drop in your blood pressure. Try to avoid suddenly standing or going directly from sleep to standing. Also, be sure to see you doctor for a full check up. ...Read more

Can you go into a coma from low blood pressure?

Can you go into a coma from low blood pressure?

Yes, but uncommon.: If BP is too low, one can faint (loss of consciousness) until ones head is level with ones feet (usually, if one falls due to fainting, consciousness returns soon after one falls to the ground). Unconsciousness when one faints is, in some sense, a transient comatose state. If low BP causes fainting, upon awakening, if one does not drink or get IV fluids, fainting can recur upon sitting up. ...Read more

Why a low blood pressure can not go for a sauna?

See below.: Lawyers are afraid the heat will cause peripheral blood vessels to dilate and allow blood to pool in extremities thereby lowering blood pressure causing a faint. If you are young and otherwise healthy I am not sure this applies to you. It would most certainly apply to someone taking a lot of meds or with significant vascular disease. Drink plenty of water and electrolytes before you go. ...Read more

Why when I stand up after sitting does my vision become fuzzy, go black and a few seconds later rerurn? I have low blood pressure and don't eat meat

Hypotension: You have postural hypotension, in which your sudden standing up doesn't allow enough time for your heart to pump hard or fast enough to get blood to your head. This is what make you feel dizzy, blurry or even tunnel vision during these episodes. It's best to standup more slowly & wait till you feel ok before moving. You should have your MD check your BP/heart & blood counts to make sure you're ok ...Read more
