Blood pressure

Postby katie-marie1991 » Fri Mar 16, 2012 2:22 pm

Hi everyone,

So I haven't got around to going to the doctor about my blood pressure yet but it has dropped from 121/80 from before I started losing weight to 115/64 and I'm finding when I get up from bed or sitting down I get quite dizzy. I thought lowering your blood pressure was a good thing!? :? Has anyone else has this problem and if so what did you do?

Thanks :D

That's not a bit drop...it's positive but not big :)

Are you on BP medication?

Be aware of the dizziness and make learn to get up gradually - from lying to the sitting position for a few secs then stand up. Be aware of your breathing to make sure there's not a bit of hyperventilating(due to anxiety) going on there too.

Oh good! I had no idea and it was a bit worrying. No I'm not on any medication (I'm only 21) but I'll definitely start getting up slower! Cheers for the reply.
