Fluids. Drink lots of water. Change positions (like from sitting down to standing up) slowly. But mainly stay hydrated. That really does help:)

I asked my doctor about this because I pass out from just straightening up after bending to pull up the zipper on my boots. She said "it's good to have low blood pressure, nothing to worry about" and just told me to be careful when I stand up :/ so I try to rise as slowly as possible and make sure I have something to hold on to.

My doctors have basically said the same thing. Be careful when standing up. Stay hydrated. And other than that, not much they can do.

Mine told me to add more salt to my diet ( my bp usually is 85/55) It really does work.I use pink Himalayan rock salt take three big pieces and add them to warm water at night every night and once during another time of the day. My dizzy spells are farther apart than they used to be

Drink loads of coffee and add salt to my diet (I always have with me salted almonds or saltines in case I feel dizzy in class or at the library)

I deal with this as well. More so when I am fasting. Same as the others...hydrate, salt...moving around a little slower, although I have a hard time with that one. I tend to rush about like a cat on fire, so...lots of dizzy spells and black vision.
