So I went to the dentist today, and guess what? Yeah, I almost passed out. They got me in a chair to lay me down, and took my blood pressure. It was 72 over forty. I guess I'm going to have to call my doctor. I had almost convinced myself despite passing out last week it wasn't a problem, but this kind of seals the deal. The good news was I had no cavities!

It is a very big deal. I've had this happen and collapsed. Now I'm fine and yours could be from a totally different issue. Get help now.

You really should, also do some research. Sounds to me, a symptom of POTS , but I could be wrong. Good luck.

You are lucky because you don't have cavities. What is your diet? Do you eat sweets? Do you drink milk? Maybe you have POTS.

I guess you'll have to be thankful for small mercies. Are you able to easily see a doctor? I hope so.

No cavities is good news but the blood pressure issue is not good and needs to be taken care of

I'm proud of you for not having any cavities. But......you have to get into your doctor about the fainting. I am worried about you Amber. Please make an appointment and get in there this week, please.

I sure will be glad to hear your doctor has seen you. This low bp and passing out are not to be ignored!

Perhaps it was the anxiety of being at the dentist. Anyway, do have it checked out with your doctor.

@AmbiePam I hope you will have your medicine soon. When I first time collapsed because of low blood, I fell down and broken my front teeth. So be careful.

I think a call to the doctor is a great idea. Something appears to not be functioning correctly.

That is worrisome. Is it a side effect of any of your meds?

I don't think so. I haven't been put on any new medications in a couple of years. I called my doctor, so I should hear back from her soon.

I have calcium deposits in my left ear and that makes me almost pass out when I turn my head too much that way. You take care.
