is a potentially dangerous condition because it implies insufficient blood supply to all tissues with oxygen and nutrients. It is no less dangerous than high blood pressure, which can cause a heart attack or stroke. Many people live with low blood pressure on the border of dangerous values without paying attention to it. However, it can lead to more dangerous cardiovascular problems.
Some people have naturally low blood pressure, which is normal for them and does not interfere with their daily life. They do not experience negative effects on their body and have no symptoms. However, when blood pressure becomes too low, some signs may appear suggesting an immediate response. If the blood pressure is not raised there is a risk of potentially very dangerous complications.
Dizziness and blurred vision
One of the most common symptoms of low blood pressure is dizziness and a lightheaded feeling. Blurred vision, blurred consciousness and lack of concentration may occur. These manifestations are due to the lack of sufficient oxygen in the brain and tissues. Blood levels that are too low can lead to fainting, and a lack of oxygen to the brain for a long time can cause dangerous damage.
Severe fatigue can also be a sign of low blood pressure, in which the tissues are not supplied with enough substances and oxygen, due to which the energy in the body drops sharply.
Nausea and vomiting
Dizziness may be accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Sufferers of these signs often feel like they are about to pass out. Some people only experience nausea without vomiting.
A drop in blood pressure can cause skin changes. It can become sticky, cold, pale. Hypotensive sufferers look very haggard and pale. Increased sweating is an indirect mechanism by which the body tries to cope with the impending risks to the cardiovascular and nervous systems caused by the drop in blood pressure values. When the body recognizes the crisis situation it is in, adrenaline is released, which causes blood flow to the extremities to decrease, as well as to other peripheral areas of the body.
Loss of consciousness
When the blood pressure is too low, it is possible for a person to lose consciousness due to the lack of oxygen to the brain. The condition is dangerous and must be controlled immediately to prevent damage.
