When Does Neurally Mediated Hypotension Lead To Symptoms?

Neurally mediated hypotension occurs in susceptible individuals in the following settings:

* after prolonged periods of quiet upright posture (such as standing in line, standing in a shower, or even sitting up for long periods),

* after being in a warm environment (such as in hot summer weather, a hot crowded room, a hot shower or bath),

* after exercise,

* after emotionally stressful events (seeing blood or gory scenes, being scared or anxious).

* some individuals get symptoms soon after eating, when blood flow has shifted to the intestinal circulation during the process of digestion.
