    Normal blood pressure is 120/80 mm hg where 120 is the systolic pressure and 80 is the diastolic pressure. Low blood pressure is an abnormal condition where a person's blood pressure is much lower than usual, which can cause symptoms such as dizziness or lightheadedness.

    Symptoms of low BP may include:

    Tiredness
    General weakness
    Light-headedness and fainting
    Blurred vision
    Dizziness
    Palpitations
    Confusion
    Nausea
    Temporary loss of consciousness.

    Low blood pressure may also caused by
    Medications used for surgery
    Anti-anxiety agents
    Treatment for high blood pressure
    Diuretics
    Heart medicines
    Some antidepressants
    Narcotic analgesics
    Alcohol

    At times unnecessary tensions can cause low blood pressure. If you’re suffering from any such situation, it’s best to avoid tensions and stay calm.

    Dehydration is one of the causes of low blood pressure. It’s common among patients with prolonged nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Large amounts of water are lost especially if the person does not drink adequate amounts of fluid to replace the depleted water. You might be dehydrated and so getting low blood pressure.

    At times weakened heart muscles cause low blood pressure. This situation can cause the heart to fail and reduce the amount of blood it pumps. One common cause of weakened heart muscle is the death of a large portion of the heart's muscle due to a single, large heart attack or repeated smaller heart attacks.

    One of the most common causes of low blood pressure is insufficient amount of food intake, i.e. if you’re on dieting, you might be having low blood pressure. It’s good to have balanced diet instead starving.

    A slow heart rate (bradycardia) can decrease the amount of blood pumped by the heart and so can cause low blood pressure. The resting heart rate for a healthy adult is between 60 and 100 beats/minute. Bradycardia (resting heart rates slower than 60 beats/minute) does not always cause low blood pressure.
