While I have very little history of low blood pressure, I have had it get quite low. I'm not sure if it was due to anxiety or what caused it. I do know that my anxiety has had my heart rate up there.

I hope your dizziness goes away quickly and that your blood pressure will resume back to normal. Keep us updated as to how you are doing.

When I went to the doctor recently for my dizziness, she said it could be because of my low blood pressure (100/60). It's not technically low, but she said for my height it is. She showed me my history, and it has been going down every time I go in. When I first went in for my anxiety in 2005 it was 140/90 or something in that range (and I was probably having a full blown panic attack at the time it was taken). So I was thinking with my heart racing all the time I now have developed the blood pressure of an athlete.

So I was just curious to see if anyone else has had the same experience or if that's just coincidence.

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be much that can be done to raise blood pressure except medication, but luckily one of the side effects from my Wellbutrin is higher blood pressure, so we'll see if that helps once it kicks in!
