"normal" BP sometimes bad?

I've heard somewhere that a recommended 120/80 can be a bad BP for some people. I used to have 150/90 blood pressure, but I've taken aims to lower it down to 119/80 (surprisingly, eating high salt/fatty foods LOWERED it, the he*$?) Lately I've been almost blacking out at night, and after walks when I sit down my butt get's really red and numb and so does any part of my body that gets any pressure. I'm taking a guess that these are low blood pressure problems, is this true? I've been having several problems like losing a lot of weight that are more likely the cause, I was just wondering about this.

Blacking out might indicate low blood pressure, but your other symptoms could mean circulation problems or endocrine problems (like thyroid). Talk to your doctor.

Under nobody's definition could 120/80 be construed as low blood pressure!
