Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

What is your blood pressure like when you have these symptoms?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Please let me know.

Customer:

doctor as far as I know my blood pressure is ok

Customer:

my bp was checked yesterday and it was perfect 120/80

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Do you have a blood pressure machine with you at the moment?

Customer:

no

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The symptoms of lightheadedness and sweating tells me that your blood pressure may be a little on the lower side.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

That you may have to reduce the dose of your medications that you are on.

Customer:

I will make an appointment to see my gp

Customer:

it will be at least 2 weeks tho doctor.

Customer:

what should I do in the mean time?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

In the meantime you should get yourself a BP apparatus.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Monitor your BP every two to four hours and check the trend of your blood pressure.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You should measure your blood pressure lying, standing, sitting.
