foods that naturally increase blood pressure??

I've been adding salt and drinking plenty of water but am still getting blood Pressures of 80/40 at times. not pregnant. I've been to my family doctor who is sending me to a specialist but that isn't for a few more weeks that I see them.

Can anyone suggest something besides salt and caffeine? its so bad my vision gets dim, cant forum words or think straight half the time, so if a doctor isn't going to correct it I need to do something on my own.

  • I'd wait for the doctor. Call the specialist and tell them you want on the cancellation list so they will call you sooner if someone else cancels.

  • p.s. both my daughter and mother had this happen but their's cleared up on its own. No one ever found out why it happened but it only happened once to each of them.
