Our expert says:
It sounds like if your blood pressure is unstable. You will have to consult your doctor, in order to have a 24 hour ambulent blood pressure monitor done. This will give a clear indication of what your blood pressure is doing over a 24 hour period, especially at night. A blood pressure reading of 147/87 is quite high and should be investigated further.
Your doctor will also have to check your thyroid and blood glucose levels, in order to get a clear indication of why you are getting dizzy spells and faints.
