Blood pressure drop causing weakness.

Q: I have noticed that my blood pressure drops about 15% within 1 hr. after breakfast. Sometimes this drop produces severe weakness (bp 100/50). Is this normal?

A: Any blood pressure change that causes symptoms should be evaluated by your doctor. Since your weakness occurs after eating, another medical problem may be the source of the weakness not your blood pressure. I would wonder about diabetes and food allergies.
