Avatar n tn You need to get yourself a blood pressure cuff and learn to take orthostatic vital signs. Do a search on the internet. Sometimes post stroke light-headedness is from an inability of the body to compensate changes in body position by the brain ordering the blood vessels in the leg to contract, much as a "G" suit squeezes a pilots legs during maneuvers. You need to determine if the compensation is simply delayed or non-existent.
Avatar m tn Many medical experts considered low blood pressure as nature’s gifts, because it slows done damages to the internal organs as compared with high blood pressure patients.

Simple low blood pressure home treatments or low blood pressure lifestyle changes or hypotension guidelines are enough to bring back the normal pressure in most of the cases of low blood pressure.
