Doctor can evaluate


A normal, HEALTHY person who gets light-headed when getting up from lying or sitting, or who feels faint sometimes, may have a problem of not enough blood returning to his head fast enough. The blood pressure may be normal or a bit low. After a doctor's exam to rule out medical problems causing low BP, the doctor may recommend taking 3 ounces of extra water each hour, plus a bit of salty snacks.

Ok if asymptomatic


Low blood pressure without symptoms of lightheadedness, difficulty thinking/speaking, and signs like rapid heart rate, evidence of blood loss through stool, vomiting, urine, is not alarming, and requires no treatment. If you are taking blood pressure pills, see your doctor for adjustment.

Dim vision,loss of balance,blood rush through head and almost fainting. Was that from low blood sugar?

Probably not


Low blood sugar usually causes sweating, tremors, headaches, and palpitations. It would need to be very prolonged or severe to cause confusion or loss of consciousness. The symptoms you mention are most often caused by reduced blood flow to the brain, from low blood pressure. You should be checked out by your physician.

Possible trouble


A clot in the leg has the potential to cause serious problems. If dislodged, the clot can travel to the lungs and cause a pulmonary embolism. Once diagnosed, a patient with a dvt can be treated in several ways. There are oral and injectable medications aimed to prevent and treat clots. Filters can be placed to prevent clots from reaching the lungs.

Blood clot in the leg


A blood clot in the leg, or deep venous thrombosis, is when the blood thickens in one of the veins in the leg, causing a "jelly" consistency collection of solid blood clot to form within the veins. Just like the plumbing system in your home, if the veins in the body get plugged up with clot, the blood flow slows and the leg can develop problems.
