Dizziness: Can It Be Caused by Low Blood Pressure?

Q:
Dizziness: can it be caused by low blood pressure?

A:
Dizziness can be caused by low blood pressure. Low blood pressure is also known as hypotension, it refers to the situation that your blood pressure is lower than 90 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) for the top number (systolic) or 60 mm Hg for the bottom number (diastolic).

Apart from dizziness, low blood pressure may lead to other situations including nausea,
fatigue, poor appetite, lack of concentration, blurred vision even shock.

But, low blood pressure is not the only cause of dizziness. Other problems such as blood clots, clogged arteries, heart failure, and an irregular heartbeat may also cause dizziness.
