SUdden drop in BP?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey guys just trying to see if anyone else experiences this.

For the past few days I've been getting random spells of feeling slightly dizzy/lightheaded and as if my BP dropped. (Kinda like when you stand up too quickly) when this happens I'll check my pulse and my heart will slow down, I'll feel slightly lightheaded, and then it'll speed up and go back to normal and I'll feel "fine" again. And it'll happen at random times too.

I've had multiple tests done (blood work, chest X-rays, heart sonogram, chest CT, tons of EKGs, treadmill stress test, and have seen a cardiologist - said the chances of anything heart related happening are slim to none) so what else could it be? Vitamin deficiency? Just anxiety?

I also checked my BP yesterday and it was normal. 109/74

    Very likely that it's just the anxiety, Michelle. If you're eating a full diet (not skipping meals) and choosing healthy foods (some fruits and veggies!), it's also unlikely that you have any mineral deficiencies. You can try taking a multivitamin if you'd like, it won't hurt anything. The dizziness might be from sinus pressure, a little head cold, changes in pressure, etc. Common things. But the anxiety will make the whole thing worse. Don't worry - you're okay! smile

      Yeah I eat a very healthy diet and take my vitamin daily. I'm just scared sad I just feel like lightheaded all day it seems and like my hearts beating irregularly.

      So you don't think it could be anything heart related right?
