Hello, Anon. Thank you for your message today.

Low blood pressure is not always a sign of a problem. For some people, having low blood pressure with no issues is normal for them. But if you have symptoms of low blood pressure, your doctor can diagnose the condition and uncover the cause. Symptoms include dizziness, lightheadedness, fatigue, paleness, and feeling faint, among others. A wide range of underlying conditions may also cause your symptoms. It's important to identify the cause of low blood pressure so appropriate treatment can be given.

Sometimes making simple changes can help raise blood pressure:
Eat a diet higher in salt.
Drink lots of nonalcoholic fluids.
Limit alcoholic beverages.
Drink more fluids during hot weather and while sick with a viral illness, such as a cold or the flu.
Have your doctor evaluate your prescription and over-the-counter medications to see if any of them are causing your symptoms.
Get regular exercise to promote blood flow.
