Thu, 19 Jan 2012 07:00:00 GMT —
In our Facebook story of the day, you wanted to know if you should be worried about low blood pressure-- the answer is yes.
It could be a sign that you are dehydrated or need to eat.
Some medicines can cause a low blood pressure as well.
Doctor Peggy Bergrab says you need to recognize signs of low blood pressure.
"You'll most likely feel light headed, you may feel dizzy, not sure of where your footing is, things like that," says Dr. Bergrab.
If you feel these symptoms, you should slowly get into a sitting position if you're lying down, or eat something.
If it happens often, you may want to check with your doctor.
