High Blood Pressure and Dizziness - What The Real Story?
by Stephen Morgan
If you are suffering from dizziness and have correspondingly have been diagnosed
with high blood pressure then it could indicate a whole series of events, all of which
will need to be investigated by your doctor or healthcare practitioner. This last point
cannot be stressed too heavily enough as there are too many occasions in relation
to medical conditions where people place too much emphasis on common folklore or
old wives tales as opposed to getting the correct medical advice from experts.
If you suffer from high blood pressure then by all means listen to other sufferers and
people in general but don't ever make the mistake of ignoring the advice of
professionals - it could be fatal to be the last mistake you ever make.
I make no apologies if I sound too dramatic but high blood pressure is serious and as
such has to retreat it as such.
Back to high blood pressure and dizzy spells however. These could be as a result of
the number of things none of which in isolation could be that serious but they could
be little indicators of potentially something more serious further down the line.
Usually dizzy spells occur as a result of changes in your blood pressure from moving
from low blood pressure to high blood pressure namely when you first get up in the
morning as it is a known medical fact that your blood pressure is usually lowest at
night and rises sharply upon waking. Conversely you could suffer dizzy spells when
your blood pressure drops sharply as a result of dehydration, blood loss, allergic
reaction, postural hypotension, namely some people suffer from dizzy spells when
they change posture if they have been in one position for a long time. The dizzy
spells could be brought about by what is called postprandial hypotension; this is
usually an occurrence that affects older adults with high blood pressure or what could
be best described as autonomic nervous system disorders such as Parkinson's
disease and basically occurs after meals.
Lastly in certain cases dizziness could be caused by neurally mediated hypotension
and by this I mean this usually occurs in young people in these usually calls because
of a miscommunication between the high and the brain which leads to dizziness and
nausea painting as a result of standing for long periods.
Whatever the reasons, if you are experiencing any dizziness or any form of
light-headedness on a regular basis then you need to see your doctor as soon as
you can. It might not be anything serious at all but it's much better for them to make
the decision rather than you.

High blood pressure and dizziness
what's the real story? Well ironically
dizziness in relation to blood pressure
probably has more in common with
low pressure than actually high blood
That being said it could be a serious
problem and in many ways the fact
that you're suffering from dizziness
and potential drops in blood pressure
are probably more important than
the levels to which the blood pressure
drops to so it is extremely important
to get to the bottom of it if it is
indeed a regular occurrence.
