19th October 2006 14:25Just back from doc after second fainting spell in 4 days. Have been feeling day-dreamy, dizzy and faint a lot recently, but knew that my blood pressure was on the low side so didn't worry. Feel fine the rest of the time. But today it is down to 83 over 50-sdomething and he wants to sign me off for six weeks. That would drive me demented, I'd hate it. I refused and we are going to reassess it in a fortnight. Am not at all stressed or worried I must admit, as can feel it coming on and would never get in a car or anything when dizzy. Apart from lots of fluid and rest, what else can I do? Any suggestions or experiences from those with low BP?
