BP question

So a couple weeks ago I had a low BP and dizziness episode. Well yesterday and today, I've been getting dizzy and shaky too. I'm drinking a lot of water and eating. I took my BP 3 times tonight it was 95/57, 97/55 and then 100/57. Do you think this is too low? Should I call the doc? I'm drinking water and relaxing, but feel a little panicky.

That doesn't sound super low to me but I would def call the doctor if you're not feeling well. Better safe than sorry in my opinion. You can always ask them for a baseline to look for as far as your bp goes. Mine's concerned about high bp so told me to call if it was above a certain #. You should ask them what a concerning bp would be for them. HTH!

Yes, I'd eat a nice big salty pickle, drink another glass of water, and call!

Those are not bad BP's for a person who normally hovers around there and who does so while NOT feeling panicky and dizzy, but if it's not normal for you & you're feeling bad, you should definitely call.
