So the last couple weeks I have noticed I have that blood rushing/seeing stars feeling ALOT. I just stumbled getting out of the bath from being dizzy, and when I bend down to load the washing machine and stand up again I’m seeing stars. Everytime I get up from the couch, out of bed or up from the floor I’m dizzy. Its not normal for me – I think its related to low blood pressure, which I’ve always had. Is this anything I should be concerned with?? I feel weird about it but l don’t know if its really a problem. Suggestions?

I suggest you go see a doctor about your symptoms and blood pressure. It’s the only way of knowing what’s truly going on with you and your body. You may be experiencing low blood sugar as well. Please keep us updated and best of luck to you.

Low blood pressure is not a problem UNLESS you have symptoms. Your dizziness is a symptom.Always remember the dizziness could be caused by something else.
Do the Check Your Symptoms on this link:
I suggest you see your doctor asap.

I have low blood pressure too and I have that happen sometimes, but not that frequently. I’d definitely get checked just to see… you could have something else going on. Is your blood sugar normally fine around this time? If you haven’t eaten in a while and you’re a little hypoglycemic that could cause it too. But I would definitely get checked… I doubt its anything serious, but just to be safe.

I have low blood pressure too, and I usesd to get dizzy when I was sick or head congested, but not any other time.
Definitely go see a doctor if this is a new symptom for you.

I’m not sure what is causing your dizziness but when I have the orthostatic hypotension drinking more water usually helps.

I have high blood pressure and get the symptoms that you described.
A friend of mine has low blood pressure, and she doesn’t get any symptoms, she just passes out and comes to later. She’s passed out on concrete before and been lucky not to hit her head…
I hope it’s nothing too serious and you get checked out.

yep – i have low blood pressure and it happens to me. my doctor mentioned that to artificially raise it for a short time, eat a salty snack. he told me this after i fainted on a plane (low blood pressure + altitude/pressure changing = no good) and now i make sure to have salted nuts or something before i fly. obviously you can’t do this every day, but if it’s a situation that you’re particularly worried about, it’s helpful.
