Dr. Andrei Ryabkov said that chronic low blood pressure is dangerous to health and can lead to chronic fatigue, weakness, stroke and kidney failure.
He says: “A person can suffer from low blood pressure from a lack of oxygen in the blood, which negatively affects the brain, heart and other organs of the body.”
The doctor explained: With low blood pressure, symptoms such as dizziness, headache, vulnerability to weather changes, feeling weak, sleep disturbance, palpitations, increased sweating and shortness of breath appear.
He says: “Low blood pressure can lead to fainting, especially in places where air is trapped. A person suffering from low blood pressure feels fluctuations in temperature and humidity and is prone to extreme mood swings.”
And he adds: If such symptoms appear, you should contact a cardiologist who can prescribe appropriate treatment. Because taking medicines to treat low blood pressure without a doctor’s prescription comes with many risks.
