Is 98/44 an okay BP or is that too low ?

Is 98/44 an okay blood pressure, or is that too low? I do get head rushes when standing up and am usually very thirsty. I am also a runner, but lately it has been difficult for me to run up hills because I get dizzy. I was unable to donate blood the other day because of my low blood pressure, but the nurse there said I was fine.

I also have blood pressure like yours, but I don't get doctor said as long as I'm not weak or dizzy, there was nothing to be concerned about. Since you are experiencing dizziness, I would ask your doctor about this. He/she might tell you to increase your sodium levels.
