Low diastolic blood pressure

my mother is getting a reading of 88/42 when she monitors her blood pressure. I know that her diastolic blood pressure is very low and I am looking for a possible explanation. Is this something she should see a doctor about right away? She is under the care of a cardiologist and significantly overweight. She is also experiencing sudden pain and stiffness in her left arm and shoulder. Please help ASAP? A concerned daughter....
