This is kind of bizarre and I wanted to get some feedback here.  I realize people with any nomadness can be affected by the weather.  As I sure am.  

I went in for dental work on Wednesday and ended up in the ER.  It was overcast and rainy that day, and I think the barometer was dropping.  I have been struggling this spring with all the weather changes.  I have had a few good days here and there but I've been very up and down.  But they went to work on my mouth, and while I was waiting for them to come back and put the crown on, my BP dropped to like 60/28.  The called the paramedics because it was so low.  So, the ER doctor found nothing wrong we went home and life goes on.  I think there were many things that pushed me over the edge.  Not feeling good.  It had been real hot and I think I was a little dehydrated.  Despite my drinking lots of water that morning and all the other days.  I drink 2 liters a day.  But I probably should've upped it.  I think my body is really struggling with this abnormal weather pattern and I think my liver is struggling.  That's another thing.  My dentist said my skin looks a little yellow.  And I had noticed too.  In fact I've had another person tell me this too.  My doctor said it's my liver and told me to take some artichoke leaf extract.  I'm not overly concerned, but I've noticed it also.  I also notice it in a church member who has diabetes.  I think he always looks a little yellow.  Which I would imagine is indicative of liver problems.  I'm interested to hear what people think about that issues as well.

But what was really strange was another gal from church, the very next day, ended up in the ER with super low blood pressure.  Her's was actually a little lower than mine.  And both of our rates were low as well.  Mine wasn't scary low.  It was like 54.  I forget what hers was.  But this gal hasn't had this problem before.  I don't know what blood type she is, but our weather has been overcast for 2-1/2 days now and I can't help but think it's got something to do with it.  The barometer reads 29.98 at present, which isn't super low but it's not high, from what I can tell.  

Any input is welcome!!!!!!

I have no idea ABNoWay, but it doesn't sound unreasonable that barometric pressure would affect your blood pressure.  I think someone here was saying it affects sinus pressure.  I'm sorry that happened to you!     I hope you get some more informative responses than mine here, but just wanted to wish you well.

That'd be me.  I am definitely very sensitive to changes in barometric pressure, but I've never heard of it affecting blood pressure.  As you said, it may have been heat/dehydration.  That could easily also be the reason it occurred to the woman from your church.  I've experienced lower BP in really hot weather.  Have you had any problems since or was it just that day?

Well, like I said, I've been having a rough spring.  I was feeling a little lightheaded from time to time the night before that appointment.  I don't know if it was dehydration or what.   But, I just tried to go out and do something (get food at restaurant) and I was battling anxiety the whole time and not feeling right.  I came home and had my wife take my BP and look at it before me so I wouldn't freak and it was 118/82.  Which is actually higher for me. But I was having anxiety and that could explain why it was higher.  But here I was picturing it plummeting.  hehehehehehe.  It's funny how that works.  My mind was telling me one thing.  But, I am taking my temperature and it's pretty low.  96.8.  I just think my body is going through tons of changes and this and that's this spring.  My wife said I don't look as yellow as the other day.  I've taken some artichoke leaf extract for the last two days.  But this morning my muscle testing is saying I don't need that much.  I'll see if silymarin is better tonight.  I look at my fingers and they have a little bit of a yellow hue to them and it sort of freaks me out I think.  But, it shouldn't.  Like I said I've noticed other people I know have sometimes a yellowish look to them at times.  Yet they're vertical and doing fine.  Well, for the most part.

I think the issues could be whatever.. but bigger I think for some drinking all that water is washing out the salts you need.. many salts.. and not replenishing them ...

maybe adding some things to water might be a way to avoid that.. some here add less then a pinch of salt to lemon water.. maybe there is something to be said for that..

as for dental work, sometimes they use on injection to work on you.. my sis ended up in hosp for jsut one of those .. somehow reacting to the stuff..

so all in all .. many issues at hand.. but yellow.. that is another issue.. I have never associated it with diab.. I would quicker think it to be some other thing.. I might add some asparagus as a food cooked or raw would not matter..  there might be other things that clear out the liver..

if it persists then I might do a real liver cleanse.. a lttle scary for me but might be  a good idea in lew of me having taken so many Tylenol in my past.. .. takes guts to do it.. I am chicken.. but others here have done it.. and if its your liver it might be worth looking at.. something to do with olive oil and lemon ....


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

The barometric pressure affects my sinuses and head.  I get headaches when the weather changes.  I don't know if I have noticed a correlation with my bp though.  I do have days where I am really low and more dizzy.  I use himalayan salt on all my food and carry some with me if I go out in case I hit a dizzy spell.  

I am afraid to use licorice to increase my bp.  I am so sensitive to everything.

Yeah, I have some licorice tea in my cupboard that I haven't tried yet.  .  I used to drink a few years ago, until I felt kind of funny one time after drinking it.  I'm bad that way.  I remember the bad too much and then stay away from something, not wanting to try it again.  I have to shut my memory down or something.  Or learn to move past it.
