Is my BP too low ?

I was wondering if my blood pressure is something to be worried about. I have been taking it for the past week or so and it has been ranging from around 86/44 to 92/58. I am sometimes dizzy and lightheaded when standing (I have sort of blacked out for a second and had to grab the wall. That was a while ago, though). I also have sort of poor circulation (cold feet and hands). Is this something to worry about and ask my doctor or is it something normal?

YES, TOO LOW AS YOU ARE SYMPTOMATIC!!! Go to your doctor to adjust your meds if you are taking any for high blood pressure or heart disease; or to determine why your pressure is so low. Are you bleeding somewhere, dehydrated? This may even deserve a trip to the ER!!
