I am a 36 yo female. I am 5.2 135 lbs. I dont smoke or drink. Over the past 4 years I have been have bouts with dizziness and confusion. I can't stand up for more than a couple of minutes with out getting dizzy . If I bend down I have the same feeling. I get disoriented and feel faint. I have had bouts of vertigo that last week's. Sometimes sitting at work I will get dizzy and confused. I have to get up and move around. I walk fast to try to avoid feeling too dizzy to make it. My doctor (3rd dr in 2 yrs) checked my thyroid and its normal so he says it's depression and referred me to psych. I am not depressed about any thing except feeling disabled. I was reviewing all medical records. I found my blood pressure is always around 110/70. The variances are like 108/70 and 110/62. I have numbness in my left leg. My doctor sent me to physical therapy. I didn't injure myself it just went numb. I now spend most of my time in bed. I cant even make it through a grocery store. What is this?

Low Blood Pressure and Hypotension Answer A62395
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Such a lower limit normal blood pressure is common especially among females and shouldnt be a sign of concern especially if there are no symptoms. The thyroid profile / function tests being normal, rule out hypothyroidism as a possible common cause for such symptoms. However, you do have dizziness and a cardiac cause should be ruled out. An EKG and echocardiogram should be advised to look for a possible arrhythmia or structural abnormality or ischemia.

Wishing you best of health

Thanks
