Low Blood Pressure Symptoms:
To be able to tell if a person has low blood pressure, he or she may display certain symptoms that indicate a particular organ in his or her body is not receiving enough blood. These symptoms will be absent however if a person who has low blood pressure is actually someone who normally has low blood pressure like people who are petite, athletes, and those who maintain their ideal body weight.
- Some people who have problems with low blood pressure may experience bouts with dizziness or nausea and may feel weak and short of breath.
- Feeling lightheaded and having chest pains can also indicate certain complications brought about by low blood pressure. Feeling lightheaded usually happens when a person is standing, sitting, or when he is prone. You may also feel bouts of unsteadiness when you get this lightheaded feeling while standing up.
- Other symptoms may include blurred vision, fainting, and a feeling of tiredness or fatigue. Unconsciousness will sometimes result when the sudden drop in blood pressure is caused by excessive bleeding or septic shock.
