      I'm dizzy often. My pcp told me it was because of my blood pressure. It was always GOOD before WLS and now it runs low causing me to get dizzy. It got REALLY low while I was in the hospital last week (70/40 ish) and I've been trying to drink more water to bring it up.

      about 3 weeks ago, i about passed out at work. Had to go to the nurse at work and here my blood pressure was extremely low. I went to the doctors the following day due to being dizzy again (i had been dizzy for a few days prior) and once again blood pressure was low. Drank lots more fluid and i mean a lot of fluid and havent had a problem with the dizziness. Hope you get better!
