I had surgery for acute sepsis after having out patient surgery to remove my right ovary with a cystic mass. My blood pressure was extremely low and ALL the medical professionals said it was due to the sepsis. Approximately 5 months after being released I was still experiencing low blood pressure, fainting, falling continuously tired and constant diarrhea. While in the hospital I was treated with a lot of antibiotics, the main one being Vankomycin. Upon going to ER 6 months post-open they did a urine culture and I was diagnosed with an infection called VRE which is Vankomycin Resistant ????. It is very serious and must be treated. I hope this helps even one person. It can only be diagnosed via a urine culture
Ask the Dr if they think u could have POTS disease....
It does sound like POTS
what is POTS?
It's Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. You need a tilt table test for diagnosis.
POTS means the symptoms occur only when you have postural change, especially from sitting or lying to standing up.

My bp always drops on dialysis days. I take midodrene but doesn't seem to do much. It seems to be worse on the hotter days. Is it possible they're taking too much fluid off?
Hello Wendy. It seems associated with the blood pressure regulation of your body. Midodrine is the right medicine. What is your BP value on dialysis day after taking midodrine?
Wendy I think that's what it is cause my mother goes to dialysis and her blood pressure drops twice a week.she pass out one time trying to understand some of this.
Yes. Low blood pressure is a common side effect of haemodialysis, it's linked to the drop of fluid level during dialysis. The best way to help is to take in fluid.
Low blood pressure runs in my family. And today my blood pressure just dropped at work that it caused me to be dizzy making my head spin.
At this moment you'll need to lie down and drink water with sodium.
I am having diarrhea to went about 8times very bad stomach pain out of nowhere just took my pressure was low 89/70 I do take pressure pills for high blood pressure stii recovering from inflammation of the Panceras just St wanted to know if the diarrhea would make it low haven't eaten since this morning also feeling nasusa
Yes, too much water loss could lower your blood pressure. I think it may help if you stop anti-hypertension drugs for now. Have you seen a gastroenterologist for the diarrhea? Best regards for you Marie.
What is considered low diastolic blood below 60 low? how to treat? what if systolic BP is normal but diastolic BP is the 60's or upper 50's.. is that a problem.. what are the symptoms? Does it need to be treated?
Below 60, yes. A normal systolic reading and a lower than 60 diastolic reading is considered low blood pressure. If you don't have symptoms, like dizziness, it's generally okay. Doing more exercises will improve.
