Inversion

I'm in my 20s, underweight, and my blood pressure is on the low side (usually varies between 105/65 and 120/80).

Even partial inversion causes extreme pressure in the head to the point of pain.  I'm not talking about hanging upside down, I mean merely trying to hang my head from the side of the bed, and even that I can only stand for a moment.  This is clearly not normal, as many people can be upside down for extended periods, and usually it is people with high blood pressure that have a problem.  What could be wrong with me, and am I at a risk for stroke or other problem by attempting inversion?
