Hi everyone
Hope you are all well as can be. Apart from the general exhaustion of my recently disagnosed inflammatory arthritis l am feeling weak and faint, sometimes dizzy when l get up to do a task. My blood pressure is dropping and its making me feel quite unable to accomplish much around the house. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Low BP can be caused by many things, some mild and some more serious but, to the best of my knowledge, arthritis of any kind isn't one of them. Indeed, RA is more likely to cause high BP. I think this is one for your GP.
