Low Blood Pressure and Fainting/Seizures

Can standing cause your blood pressure to fall so rapidly that you faint and have a seizure?  Can it be the sign of some heart problem?

If you are on blood pressure pills, standing after taking those will make you feel faint, sometimes dizzy.  I think dizziness is mostly a result of low blood pressure, or inner ear problems.  Simply standing up too fast does not cause fainting normally.

My brother had a seizure this morning related to low blood pressure. It was so low they could not even read it until he was feeling better then it read 69/29....

Having a seizure after fainting could either be from Epilepsy or from a heart arrhythmia. Whoever this happened to should be checked out by both a neurologist and a cardiologist to rule out either problem soon.

Fainting, dizziness etc can also be signs of nervous system problems.

Autonomic nervous system problems can cause your BP and HR to drop quickly - check on Orthostatic Hypotension or Orthostatic Intolerance and Neurocardiogenic Syncope.

I have NCS and OI along with malignant heart rhythms - had to have a tilt table test to diagnose the problems (electrophysiologist EP ordered it)
