Today I have not been feeling well – headache and a little light-headed. Oh great, I thought, I’m coming down with Covid-19. However, one of my sisters advised that I take my blood pressure since a low BP could cause one to feel light-headed. So I did – four times over the course of about 30 minutes because I’m compulsive like that. Here are the readings:
117/58 98/57 110/58 110/59
It’s a fairly consistent reading – especially for the second number. And all four are too low. That could easily account for the light-headed feeling I’ve had – and maybe for the headache, too.
I take BP meds each evening. It’s a fairly low dose, but I’m thinking that with my healthy eating the past 7 weeks, plus losing some weight, that it has affected my BP. So tonight I will cut my dose in half. I will continue to monitor my BP, and hopefully it will be better after a day or two.
