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!!

My blood pressure has been averaging 107/70. I measure everyday in the morning. Sometime I will get readings as low as 100/65. I have recently lost more weight and have retired. Reducing a lot of stress. I exercise everyday and still play hockey 2 times a week. I am taking half of 1mg of lisinopril but still have side effects. The cough and libido. How long after I stop taking the meds will my bp begin to increase, if the problem is still there. The highest is ran was 150/100.

My grandfather is 89 years old and is in heart failure. The opening in his arotic valve is about the size of a pin hole and he cannot pass blood through it. He has been in and out of the hospital 8 times since december and is in congestive heart failure. When we found out about this 4 years ago, we did not do the surgery because it was too high risk but now we have no choice but to do it. What are the chances of recovery?

I walked upstairs and was slightly out of breath. I sat down and noticed my heart rate was elevated but no pain or discomfort. I then noticed I could see my heart rate in my eyes as it caused them to pulse. I'm just wondering if that is a problem.
