fatique dizziness

I am a 57 year old female post menopausal. I had severe hot flushes. For the last year I have been fine. Two weeks ago I started feeling faint, very fatiqued and dizzy with headaches, heart palpitations, cold feet and hands and warm spells with cold shiverings. My blood pressure is very low 103/62 and I have high blood sugar levels. I keep to my sugar freee diet and have been managing it for 9 years. I am anaemic and my doctor suggested I take HRT. I have also started with iron supplements.
Could low oestrogen levels have these symptoms and lead to low blood pressure? Please help!

Hallo Fiffy
Low Esterogen can cause flushing, palpitations and tiredness but won't cause low blood pressure. Just following a sugar free diet may not be enough to normalize your blood sugar levels and high blood sugar levels may cause heart, brain, eye and kidney damage. Low blood pressure can also be a side effect of diabetes as high blood sugar can damage the your nervous system.
