Also known as postural hypotension, Orthostatic Hypotension is a type of low blood pressure that happens when you stand up from sitting or lying down. This can make you feel dizzy and may even make you faint. Usually, the condition lasts for a few seconds but if this happens for a longer period and is more frequent, it may indicate a more serious condition. Apart from light-headedness, the other symptoms are blurry vision, weakness, confusion and nausea.
HOW IS ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION DIAGNOSED?
Monitoring of blood pressure while standing and sitting could help diagnose this disorder. Blood tests and ECG could help to determine whether this condition is being caused due to any other disorders or diseases.
HOW IS ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION TREATED?
For mild orthostatic hypotension, one of the simplest treatments is to sit or lie down immediately after feeling lightheaded upon standing. Your symptoms of orthostatic hypotension usually disappear.
DID YOU KNOW?
Most people experience orthostatic hypotension at sometime but most cases are mild with symptoms passing quickly and therefore they go unnoticed and undiagnosed.
