  • I've recently starting to notice dizzy spells, my blood pressure is quite low, when I stand up quickly I get dizzy and sometimes blurring around the eyes, I've not passed out though and I've not had it before, and am currently off all drugs, after having had a lap and ttc. Be interested to know what your diagnosis is!

  • I and my children all have low blood pressure and we were often dizzy. My daughter fainted on a number of occasions, cutting herself quite badly on door knobs, etc. She was referred to a specialist. After various test, the diagnoses was put down to low salt levels! For a long time I had been giving the family a low salt diet, not realising that low salt can be harmful. I increased salt in our food and since then (5 years) there has been no fainting and little dizziness.

  • I have dizzy spells too and the feeling of being light-headed. I've not actually passed out but have felt the need to stop before I fall over if I have been out and about walking.

    I suffer from high blood pressure as opposed to low so I'm wondering if it is low salt levels as Jaine's daughter was diagnosed with? Food for thought indeed and another question to put to my consutant next month!

    Thanks for the tip ladies and hope you get sorted soon Natureschild

  • hey guys i had my ECG and all was fine doc told me i just have to deal with the blood pressure being low and the dizzy spells but seeing your comments on hear ladies it seems quite common i was told that the dizzy and passing out spells could be something called PoTS need to look into it but you ladie have a look to and see if its simular to what you have coz it is with mine the docs should be fun they hate it when you go in and tell them whats wrong with you!
