Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Detailed Answer: If you dont have other symptoms such as vertigo,paleness, fatigue,palpitations or chest pain,then you dont have to be worried. This is low blood pressure,but still not alarming and I dont think it indicates some specific heart disease. Just drink plenty of fluids today,rest and check your BP every 8 hours. If it become less than 100/40 or new symptoms occur then visit doctor. If there will be persistant low BP,then you can do cardiologist work up but this is not an emergency. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards.
