When my blood pressure is low I have headache, dizziness, vomiting, and sometimes I faint. Right now I have it real bad, I'm at work and I can't do anything.

My pressure is 80 over 40. I'm getting headache, dizziness, vomiting, blurred vision, etc. It takes about 2 weeks for me to get back to my normal blood pressure.

I have pains at the back of my head, back and down my arms, and a bit nausea because of low blood pressure.

I have had low blood pressure (BP) for years, now my symptoms have escalated this last few months. I have severe pain throughout my body, and my eye sight is very bad. I cannot tolerate solid foods. I have watery stools every day, and cannot control my fluids. I sleep most of the day away. I have dizzy spells and faint often. My last BP was 70/50 which is pretty good for me! I don't feel too lively but that's life, you have to accept it! It could be worse!

When I have low blood pressure I am light headed, sun bothers my eyes, feels like my eyes are beyond wide open. I wear sunglasses, it takes a while for eyes to adjust.

I have had confusion, faintness, felt shaky, unable to hold things in my hands, have spilled and dropped things, taken frequent naps, had headaches, fuzzy eyesight, can't read, and also would feel cranky and angry. I stopped taking my blood pressure medication. The reading was 90/50 and 87/49; now it's 107/60 and I am feeling better.
