When?


[Kl...]

Recommended Posts

When would you consider low BP an issue enough to see if it's not must withdrawl? My BP started acting up on benzos, it was very low. I had a procedure done and they couldn't let me leave Bc my BP was so low. My doctor said more salt more water. Now almost 5 months off benzos I just checked it today and it's 94/70. I feel beyond tired all the time. Is this common? Is it at this point something else being it's been like this for awhile? Help. Blessings K

Klonofree,

 

Withdrawal has had the opposite effect with my BP.  I take meds to keep it at a safe range.  Maybe a scrip could get it up a little more, and you might feel better!

Low blood pressure is anything below 90/60 some people can have it that's low and be fine . As long as they aren't showing symptoms of low blood pressure. Unfortunately symptoms of low blood pressure are exactly the same is your basic benzo withdrawel symptoms .

 

 

My bp gets as low as 90/58 and it Usaully sits around or below 100/65 . I told my doctor about it and he said it's fine it just means your heart is more healthy......Even though I told him I am not active enough to merit that healthy of a bp. Anyway it scares me sometimes , but I don't think it can kill us. I mean if you actually faint . That is when you know it's a problem.

 

Increasing your salt intake was sound advice . If it is really freaking me out I throw a pinch of salt on something and eat it, Usaully brings it up enough. Also try not to stay in the same position allday. Get your blood flowing every morning .

 

Hope this helps

How does your BP react to movement? Have you considered small walking sessions? Moderate slow walking, 5 - 10 minutes not more. Cold-Hot-Cold-showers may help, too.

On what does your BP react at all? Food, water, beverages, sleep, nap...?

Yes... Very helpful. Sometimes I feel like I won't make it, super tired. Makes me feel like something else is going on. Once I have insurance I will do all tests just to have peace of mind. Love K bless you

I'm not sure how it reacts to any of the above truly because I don't take it that often. I took it when I was food shopping after work it was like 4 ish. It was low and I had felt so tired and bad all day. I walk as much as I can, I eat as well as I can. Maybe it's becuase of my job. No matter what, it stresses me out. Thanks for answering hope all is well with you. Love K
