Thanks for responding. I have yet to see a cardiologist, though I talked with my former husband after it got THAT low, a cardiologist in Salt Lake City. He asked, "Well, how do you FEEL?" And I said "a little light-headed, but the bp goes up after a while and I'm fine." He's had patients with very low bp that still feel okay, that the numbers are low according to normal standards, but some people are okay with that. I'm going to my internal med doc in a week. She always wants to put me on drugs, and I have a "paradoxical reaction to pharmaceuticals" so I try not to go there but may have to. I have a feeling this might be related, or a result of, the heatstroke I had three summers ago. Thoughts?
