    A good one if you take statins or ramipril. I'd run it past your GP.

    Last thing he wants with HYPOtension is ramipril.

    Don't stand up too quickly.

    I thought hypotension was the same as high blood pressure.

    hyper = high
    hypo = low

    hypothermia = low body temperature
    hypoglycemia = low blood sugar
    hypothyroidism = low thyroid levels

    When did this become a medical forum? However this is typical medical jargon aimed to mystify the common man. It means feeling dizzy when standing up and walking around due to low blood pressure.

    Clearly one of the finest & most obtuse thread titles of recent times. I'm off to start Googling.

    Let me stand up for a moment ...
