Dear Friend,

I am not certain that the dizziness was due to the climate change.

Although that might be the case, I think it is more likely that perhaps you might have been experiencing some other concern, such as dehydration. With low blood pressure, it is important to drink plenty of fluids to build up the blood volume as much as possible; and travel can change our habits, schedules, and the way we normally eat and drink. If you had not been drinking as much fluid as usual, I think that would be a more likely cause of the blood pressure drop than the climate change.

However, I suggest you address your question to “Ask the Doctor,” as they may have other information they would like to suggest.
Best regards,
