Yes, its a little lower than normal. However, if you are not having fainting/dizziness/fatigue as symptoms from this blood pressure, then there is probably not much to be alarmed about. Currently, mine on average r runs 100/60, but under stress will go up to 120/80 (right exactly at normal) but under much less duress, or after exercise, I typically have a 90/50 blood pressure, and at times reach as low as 85/45. Even coupled with a resting heart rate of high 30s to low 40s, I only experience dizziness as a symptom when I stand up quickly.

Read up on Orthostatic Intolerance (OI), and Neurally/ NeuroMediated Hypotension (NMH). They're considered Dysautonomias. I'm disabled b/c of those. My BP was 80/50 and I used to black out. They used to think it was psychological but then found out it wasn't! There are simple tests for it.

You are not alone dear...My blood pressure runs low like yours too...yesterday it was 104/50...strange to me...but thats what nurse said it was. Usually it runs between 80/50 or 90/ whenever my blood pressure is within the normal high for me.
