    Hi Dee,

     

    Hypotension or low blood pressure is usually when blood pressure drops to 90/60 or below.  However, individuals with previous heart issues may show symptoms of low blood pressure at 100/60.  The most common symptoms for low blood pressure are lightheadedness and fatigue.  It's very possible that your dizzy/sleepiness is related to your low blood pressure.  I recommend you speak with your MD regarding your symptoms and blood pressure reading to determine if there is reason for concern. 

     

    All the best,
