My blood pressure is usually at 80 / 65 (measured using an automated bp monitor) with pulse 75 - 80.
I'm 5'2' and weigh 110lbs.
I don't experience any giddy spells or any discomfort, until just a feel days ago.
I was doing the dishes after dinner and all of a sudden, I felt my surroundings going dark and had to sit down and close my eyes. At the same time, I was feeling nausious. The feeling lasted for about 15 mins and then I was ok after that. My blood pressure measured 85/55 the next morning.
Is my blood pressure too low? What could be the problems of having very low blood pressure? What is my optimal blood pressure?
I monitor my bp regularly because I have a family history of hpt.

Thanks for the advice.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. 80 is lowest limit of normal, you need to have it charted to see the variations and meanwhile get evaluated for any cause of hypotension. Good balanced diet and hydration will help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
