My husband was admitted to the ER with a blood pressure of 215 over 120. He experienced dizziness, sweating and rapid heart beat. This has occurred several times--usually during periods of stress. However, the doctors have diagnosed vado vagal syncope, which I understand is associated with low blood pressure. Any thoughts?
