Archive for the ‘Hypotension’ Category


I’m pretty sure that I have legit hypotension, however, my oncologist doesn’t think it’s a good idea to prescribe anything to raise a persons blood pressure. I’m eating a lot of salt relative to my pre-chemo diet, yet I frequently get blurred/white-out vision when standing up. I need to get a physical with my primary care doctor once chemo is up- I guess I’ll just wait to mention it again to him. If you’re curious, my blood pressure was something like 96 over 54 yesterday (when I wasn’t having hypotension side effects). I presume that it drops lower than this when having those side effects. According to a chart I found online- my blood pressure is normal for a child.
