Quite often dizziness is brought about by the sudden drop in blood pressure and people affected wonder what effect this could have and what is indeed a safe limit for blood pressure to drop to?

Regarding the last question is that there is no specific number to which blood pressure is considered to be too low it is just the fact that a sudden fall in blood pressure can be dangerous.

A sudden drop in blood pressure and the resultant dizziness can be caused by a whole number of things ranging from being pregnant, (if you are a woman) through to an adverse reaction to different types of medications. Lastly it could indeed be what is called neurally mediated hypotension went by the dizziness because primarily as a result of standing for long periods. This is usually considered to be a condition that primarily affects younger people basically occurs because of a miscommunication between the heart and the brain.

What is it about high blood pressure that makes it a problem and when ignored so lethal?

In 90 to 95 percent of high blood pressure cases, the cause is unknown.

In fact, you can suffer from high blood pressure for years without knowing it hence its name “the Silent Killer”.

If spotted there are a couple of signs that can be attributed to high blood pressure and if these are observed and with out apparent cause then they should not be left untreated.

Some of the following can be found to be included as symptoms: Dizziness, Fainting Spells, Morning Headache , Increased frequency of urinating at night.

Though the above can indicate high blood pressure it has to be emphasised that they might just as easily indicate other associate conditions.

What is the exact definition of high blood pressure?

Using an internal network and system of vessels called arteries, the heart pumps blood and nutrients to the body’s major tissues and organs.

In nine cases out of ten then the particular cause of high blood pressure is hard to identify and as such in these cases the high blood pressure is termed “Primary (Essential) High Blood Pressure”.

For those whose incidences of high blood pressure fall outside of the category described above then if the cause of the high blood pressure can be traced directly to one particular failing organ etc then the cause can usually be dealt with and as such the “Secondary High Blood Pressure” can accordingly be treated quite successfully.

In every one out of ten cases of high blood pressure diagnosed, the incidence falls within the category known as “Malignant Hypertension”. Quite often this is discovered totally by accident and may be as a result of an associate test such as an eye test whereby the Optician can sometimes detect the condition by merely looking into a patients eye.

As in all cases if you’ve been diagnosed with high blood pressure and you suddenly start to suffer incidents like these on a semi regular basis then the bottom line is that you need to see your doctor as soon as is possible.
