Hypotension

Low blood pressure (less than 90/50).

Low blood pressure often does not reflect any medical problem, unless it is caused by another medical condition, for example myocardial infarction.

Sometimes, people with low blood pressure may suffer from weakness and even loss of consciousness when additional drop of blood pressure occurs, for instance during particularly hot weather. Abundant drinking can prevent these symptoms.

Low blood pressure does not constitute protection from future development of hypertension.
