Q: My blood pressure keeps bottoming out. Any ideas?

I have been having these episodes since January.  They are sporadic, never know when they will appear.  There is never the same time of day nor am I doing the same thing when they happen.  My pressure goes as low as 48/30. I will usually just Pass out and go to sleep(a very scary feeling). The episodes will last about two to three hours with the pressure slowly going back up. I feel really lethargic the rest of the day.  I wear a c-pap at night and I think that is why I have never had one during the night.  I am wearing a heart monitor for a month, but cardiologist is not sure  if the heart is the cause of the episodes.  Any ideas or answers?

Hi Meme,


Wow.  This does not sound like it's any fun at all.  I don't have any answers for you but do hope that you and your doctors discover something through the testing.  I'm sure that you'd like to be back to feeling better soon.  Good luck.

Thanks, I'm not worried about it right now.  At the moment I am going through the migranes and muscles in arms and legs tingling then muscles "freezong" up.  Feels sort of like charlie horses. I have fallen a couple of times.  Going to the doctor tomorrow...still not showing any lesions on MRI of brain.  I had one of my cervical and thorasic areas, I have not heard from them yet.  I really appreciate all of the support I have gotten from this site...It helps to "whine" about something and know someone understands what you are feeling because sometimes you can't tell anyone exactly what is going on....THANK YOU Smile
