Is a pain in the butt. It’s when I stand up my blood pressure drops very suddenly and I nearly faint or fall down. There is a new med for it that my pdoc is going to ask his colleagues about. Ì can’t stand looking like I’m drunk or feeble. Ì can’t even step up onto a curb without holding on to something. Ì was using a walker for awhile but I hate it. Ì just want to be normal.
That seems pretty extreme. I hope they figure out the cause and make changes for you.
I was just reading more about it. Mine happencoming s every time I stand up and lasts pretty much all the time I’m standing. Some of the causes are pretty scary when it is chronic. I’ve fallen down several times. Ì have a stress test coming soon. Hopefully that shows something.
I hope the stress test shows nothing! You don’t want it to be your heart. Good luck
I wish you well @FatMama.
Orthostatic Hypotension sounds scary.
That’s true. Ì just want to know why this is happening
My daughter has it too but we don’t know why
I feel for you. I had a temporary bout of it. It was very disabling. I hope you get to the bottom of it. Feel better soon.
