What are the characteristics of low blood pressure, and are headaches a feature of the corona virus?

1 Answer:

Hello Yulita.

First you have to explain exactly what you mean by 'low blood'. The term is a layman's term that can have ambiguous meaning in the medical world. The term 'low blood' is often used by people to describe low blood pressure or to describe anemia (low red blood cell levels). Both are very different things and not always related.

Low blood pressure (hypotension) is a condition in which a person's blood pressure is lower than the normal average value of the person, and gives symptoms in the form of headaches, dizziness or dizziness, dark vision, fainting, sometimes accompanied by nausea, vomiting and difficulty breathing. There is no specific benchmark when someone is said to have hypotension. That is, if someone has blood pressure lower than the average person in general, but the person does not have any symptoms, then that person can not be said to be hypotensive. For example, someone with a blood pressure of 90/60 mmHg but without symptoms, then that person is not said to have hypotension. Conversely, if someone who normally has a blood pressure of 120/80 mmHg, then one day the person has a blood pressure of 100/70 mmHg and symptoms appear as above, then that person can be said to have hypotension.

Anemia is low levels of red blood cells that can be caused by various things. The symptoms are similar to the above symptoms, coupled with weakness, lethargy, fatigue, and pale. Anemia and hypotension are not always related.

Headaches are caused by so many things. In addition to hypotension and anemia, other physical and psychological conditions can generally cause headaches. As long as you do not have other symptoms that lead to COVID-19, then your headaches cannot be immediately categorized as COVID-19 symptoms. Symptoms that lead to COVID-19 are dry cough or phlegm, fever above 38C and do not improve with medication, shortness of breath, and additional symptoms such as sore throat, headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, joint and muscle pain. Indeed COVID-19 does not always provide typical symptoms as above. Many people with COVID-19 have no symptoms or minimal symptoms, so they can heal themselves with treatment at home. Therefore, if someone feels unwell, you should limit contact with people around you, including family, get enough rest, and make sure your nutritional intake remains optimal.

Thus the information I can give, hopefully can help you. Regards.
