Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Aortic stenosis (AS) is a narrowing of the aortic valve in the heart. This valve is located between the left ventricle (lower pumping chamber) and the aorta. The aorta is the largest artery in the body. It transports blood from the heart throughout the body. The aortic valve has three cusps, or flaps, that control the direction and flow of the blood. Aortic stenosis causes obstruction or blockage of blood flow through this valve.

Aortic stenosis does not always produce symptoms. However, if symptoms do occur, they may include the following:

Extreme fatigue after exercise or exertion
Fainting with exercise or exertion
Chest pain, such as squeezing, pressure, or tightness
Sensation of rapid or irregular heartbeat (palpitations)
Shortness of breath
Neurological symptoms of a stroke or mini-stroke

You will to talk to your doctor about your low blood pressure and he/she will make a treatment plan for you based on your particular case.
