    Have either of you considered Dyautonomia?  Teenage girls can be tested to see if they have POTS. Check out a list of symptoms at http://www.dinet.org/symptoms.htm.  Go through the symptoms with your daughter. If she as a lot of them take it to her doctors and ask for a tilt tabel test to confirm or rule it out. It is a very scary disorder. I have it and so does my 13 year old daughter.  We hae found taht most doctors are not familiar with it.  But at that site you can find a lot of doctors that speciailize adn treat it.

     

    Hope this helps and I pray your daughter get some effective treatement soon, if they have nto already.

    I also having the same problem here. I am 14 yo girl and an asian . My blood pressure always in low level. I don't know why although both of my parents are working in hospital, they don't know what kind of disease I have. Once I had blood taken but the result showed nothing happens to me ( but some of results like glucose, albumin are showed lower than normal). So, my father decides to blood taken me once again soon (this time blood test for checking whether I have anemia,thalassemia or leukemia). When I checking through the blood pressure reader, my systolic blood pressure always showed in between 70-80. For diastolic 40-60.
