Oh yeah!



I pass out several times a week from blood pressure problems. I have an illness called Dysautonomia. My autonomic nervous system cannot regulate my blood pressure, heart rate, circulation, respiration, digestion, etc. I have to take more than 20 pills each day just to stay conscious. My best friend has it too.

Either too high or too low can cause you to pass out, VL. Be a good boss and give yourself the night off tonight, eh?

I come from a long line of high-blood pressure forbearers. I'd also suggest seeing a doctor. They will take a blood sample and analyse it. Meanwhile, drink a cup of Rosehip&Hibiscus tea. It definitely lowers the blood pressure, but only for a few hours.

Absoutely- either too high or too low will do it. Be careful- it's nothing to mess with. Talk to your Dr- be well.

yes it does; I passed out in November, in December, I told my doctor about it, and he said it was the blood pressure. it was low.

Oh honey go to a Dr...you could have a stroke or have too low blood pressure and pass out and get hurt when you fall...Please go??

Best Answer

Hmm. I almost pass out by standing up to quick. I did get my pressure checked out and it is normal. There maybe other things involved in my case.

I would say get it checked out just in case.

Best Answer

Yes, it can. It happened to me all the time, but my blood pressure would suddenly drop out of no where... and I pass out in the middle of the street. Not much of a great defense mechanism lol

Best Answer

yes see a dr

Best Answer

Most definately. remember that the heart pumps blood to the brain so therefore if the pressure is too high or too low, it will have an effect.

Best Answer

Yes if your blood pressure becomes higher than 160 or lower than 60, you may start to feel symptons due to your blood pressure. In general, the body could adapt very well to either very high or very low blood pressure in the short term. Get yourself checked out and test your blood pressure over a period of time to see if your blood pressure stays higher than 140.

Dude yeah, I can get messed up blood pressure in my head after getting up, and I passed out once. :O

Yes, high blood pressure CAN and DOES make some people pass out....and it puts you at a very increased risk for stroke....follow up with your doctor, pronto....get yourself on some high blood pressure meds.....



Richard Simmons, the exercise guru (among other things)....was driving, waiting at a red light, and passed out....went to the hospital, and it was hypertension....that's what sparked his obsession with fitness....it scared him that much....take care, V.
