99/52 is not considered as low BP. But it might be a factor, specially depending on the type of BP med that you are on.

But there are a number of other issues. With the sinus infection you might not be eating enough or the right things. Might not even be getting enough water.

And the sinus inflection might be causing the problem itself. Or it might be a virus and not a baterial infection.

Time to go back to the doctor.
