fluctuating blood pressure


I am a bit concerned as my blood pressure appears to be dipping a lot lately. I had a full set of blood tests in November last year, my medical aid was running a special and all seemed fine. I have been really stressed lately but can''t understand why it dips so much? Sometime I am really light headed and almost wobble when I''m standing. What should I do?

Consult your doctor for a 24 hour blood pressure monitor. This test measures your blood pressure over a 24 hour period. This will give a clear indication of what your blood pressure does over a 24 hour period. The results can be used to suggest treatment.
