How's Your Blood Pressure?

My blood pressure has always been low (around 95/65 these days). I suspect it might be related to Crohn's Disease and special diets.

Mine is below 120/80, but if I stopped my blood pressure meds it would be over 12/80 in just a couple of days.

Mine is good after having been diagnosed in 2012 for high blood pressure. I was having problems with vision and balance, felt light headed and had to stop at the clinic. I was 216/108, no wonder I felt awful. Amplodpine with 81mg Asprin and its controlled well.

Low blood pressure is a common sign of dehydration, a stealth Crohn's symptom due to diarrhea. If your blood pressure used to be significantly higher, 120 and its now 90, etc you might want to discuss hydration and your electrolyte balance with your doctor. Getting hydrated can really help with fatigue.
