Causes Of Low Blood Pressure Accompanied By A Pale Face, Cold Palms And Feet?
Good afternoon Doctor,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
You need to know beforehand, that based on the latest AHA (American Heart Association) guidelines in 2017, normal blood pressure is below 130/80 mmHg. So, if you have a previous history of hypertension, you should be happy now that your blood pressure is back to normal.
The weakness, drowsiness, paleness, and cold sensations in the hands and feet that you experience can appear due to various other reasons, not necessarily due to hypotension (low blood pressure). Here are some possibilities:
Anemia (low blood hemoglobin) Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) Dehydration (lack of fluids) Lack of sleep Viral or bacterial infections (eg typhoid) Abnormal heart function Gastric ulcers, gastritis Hypothyroidism (hypoactive thyroid gland) Diabetes (diabetes) Psychological stress, etc. If the complaint feels very limiting for you in your activities, you can first check with a general practitioner. Through a series of examinations, starting from a physical examination, assisted also with heart records, X-rays, or also laboratory tests, doctors can generally identify the cause of your complaint. In this way, the appropriate treatment can be determined as well.
In the meantime, you can do the following tips to make your body feel more fit:
Exercise regularly 3 to 4 times a week, for example jogging, swimming, cycling, aerobic exercise Get plenty of rest Eat regularly, follow the DASH diet (dietary approaches to stop hypertension) Also increase food rich in vitamin K and iron Stay away from cigarettes and alcohol Calm your mind , avoid stress and depression Avoid indiscriminate drug consumption Hope it helps ya ..
