Does one lead to the other?


Answer by  cindy (1484)

Low blood pressure, or hypotension, can cause a person to experience dizziness. This is because blood flow to the brain is decreased. Dehydration is a common cause of low pressure. Too much blood pressure medication in people who are hypertensive can also be a cause of low blood pressure. Infections can also dilate blood vessels decreasing blood pressure.
