POSTURAL HYPOTENSION CARE

POSTURAL HYPOTENSION CARE

WHENEVER you get up from your easy chair, you feel like the room is spinning and you have to sit down again. You could be suffering from postural hypotension.

  • Check your medication. If you take something for high blood pressure, it could be creating the problem.
  • Take your time getting up, count to 60 as you get up slowly.
  • If you have been sitting or lying down for long time, move your legs before you try standing to get the blood circulation.
  • Try elastic stocking, as they may increase blood flow from the extremities.
