Patient Comments: Low Blood Pressure - Numbers

What did you do to get your low blood pressure numbers up into a normal range?

On November 5, 2011 I woke up extremely dizzy. I stood up and fainted. I had a heart attack in 2006. So emergency medical technicians thought it was an attack. I was taken to the heart hospital. Blood pressure dropped to 50/18. I knew I was very sick but in a quiet place. I had a stomach ulcer. I had to have 8 units of blood and 2 units of white cells. Twenty four hours later I was back up to normal blood pressure. Do not delay in getting medical attention.

For the past several months, my doctor and I have had problems getting my blood pressure to a lower level. First the readings were too high, and then they would dip low. Now, after one week of perfect readings (110/70) my blood pressure has dropped so low I can hardly stand. It is also hard on my breathing, since I have emphysema. This is after two days of no BP pills whatsoever. What could this possibly be caused by?

For over 5 years I have had high blood pressure for which my doctor prescribed daily dose of EZIDAY 50 mg and OGREL 75mg - about one month ago I started a diet of one tablespoon Honey with half tablespoon Cinnamon and six drops of Black-Seed Oil. Now I have been having dizzy spells and blood pressure is as low as 100/60 in fact the Diastolic level is constantly below 70. Is this an area of concern because my Doctor says it's within normal limits whereas I used to be a steady 120/80 for most of my life. Is this due to my changed diet.
