Does this sound like low blood pressure?

Hi everyone

Generally when I walk I feel light headed and look pale would this indicate low blood pressure? I don't have this problem when doing other exercise such as running though. I'm male in my 20s and like to think I'm fairly fit & healthy with good diet although I suffer from anxiety. Low blood pressure does seem to run in my close family.

Thanks in advance for any replies I receive.

Why not just measure your blood pressure? Try to avoid using the blood pressure measuring devices in shopping malls - they are not calibrated properly. If you know anyone with a blood pressure monitor, ask to use his. If not, your doctor is the person to see for this.
Feeling dizzy/lightheaded is not normal, especially for someone your age, and should be investigated. There are many possible causes, including hypotension. If the lightheadedness persists, bring it to your doctor's attention.

If you are pale as well, maybe anemia? Have you had your iron levels checked recently? Just a thought, and nothing too serious.

Re: Does this sound like low blood pressure?

Unfortunately due to my anxiety my bp always rises if I go to the doctor or have my bp checked. I'm curious why it is only when I'm walking and not doing other exercise? Thanks for your replies.
