View Full Version : Blood Pressure

I know lupus with kidney involvement can cause high blood pressure, but has anyone had low blood pressure with their flares? I get extremely nauseated and my blood pressure drops really low – 90/60. I have even passed out before if I don’t lay down when it is really bad. Just curious if anyone else has experienced this.

Just this last Sunday and Tuesday, my BP dropped to 97/55 and I'm normally a 120/180 or 110/70 gal. Still trying to figure out why this may have happened.

I have a friend who's bp drops when she has too much sugar in a sitting...hers dropped to 85/60 yesterday as well as rapid heart beat...strange. I think it is because of hypoglaucemia for her, but I am not a doc. :cute:

I have always had low blood pressure, 90/65 is my normal. But I do not feel bad with that pressure, sometimes when it is real hot, I have to get up very slowly, so that I don't get dizzy.
