Low blood pressure in itself is not alarming if there are no symptoms associated with it, such as dizziness. For athletic people, low blood pressure is normal. In the elderly we worry about falls, and syncope (fainting). If you have symptoms of an infection, such as fevers or chills, this can be a sign of severe infection and you should see your doctor immediately.

Your blood pressure should be kinda in between i think

sorta round the 120/60 mark


if i'm remembering correctly
high blood pressure gives you headaches and blurred vision
and low blood pressure makes you clumsy tired and dissy

so yeh in the middle would be best

Low blood pressure can be just as dangerous as high blood pressure.


imkait08
It depends on how low. It's good to have it at a certain point, but if it drops too far below the normal level, that is not a good sign. It's also bad if it is higher than the normal level.

The "normal" or suggested level is 120/80. If it's much lower than that, you should get it checked out by a doctor.

low pressure is really bad for uur health, it can lead to people fainting & stuff.


mcmoustache
If it's moderately low, then no. In fact, lower blood pressure is generally beneficial to your health.

I have very low blood pressure and have fainted upon standing up too quickly. Generally when I stand up I get very light-headed, even when I stand up slowly.

Aside from that, though, I've never had any problems.

Low is just as bad as high.

Your blood pressure should be 120/80 give or take 5 or 6 points.

Low blood pressure can be bad for your health too, your body has to have enough blood pressure to get your blood pumped to all your organs. low blood pressure can cause you to pass out.

Blood pressure is the force exerted by circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels, and constitutes one of the principal vital signs of life, which also include heart beat, rate of breathing, and temperature. Blood pressure is generated by the heart pumping blood into the arteries and is regulated by the response by the arteries to the flow of blood.

An individual's blood pressure is expressed as systolic/diastolic blood pressure, for example, 120/80.The systolic blood pressure (the top number) represents the pressure in the arteries as the muscle of the heart contracts and pumps blood into them. The diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) represents the pressure in the arteries as the muscle of the heart relaxes after it contracts. Blood pressure always is higher when the heart is pumping (squeezing) than when it is relaxing.

Systolic blood pressure for most healthy adults falls between 90 and 120 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). Normal diastolic blood pressure falls between 60 and 80 mm Hg. Current guidelines define normal blood pressure as lower than 120/80. Blood pressures over 130/80 are considered high. High blood pressure increases the risk of developing:

heart disease,


kidney disease,


hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis or arteriosclerosis),


eye damage, and


stroke.
Low blood pressure (hypotension) is pressure so low it causes symptoms or signs due to the low flow of blood through the arteries and veins. When the flow of blood is too low to deliver enough oxygen and nutrients to vital organs such as the brain, heart, and kidney, the organs do not function normally and may be permanently damaged.

Unlike high blood pressure, low blood pressure is defined primarily by signs and symptoms of low blood flow and not by a specific blood pressure number. Some individuals may have a blood pressure of 90/50 with no symptoms of low blood pressure and therefore do not have low blood pressure. However, others who normally have high blood pressure may develop symptoms of low blood pressure if their blood pressure drops to 100/60.
