The bottom number is too low. You should have this checked out by a physician ASAP. People tend to think that the bottom number is not as important as the top but it is. It indicates a function of the heart that is different from the function that the top number measures. The low number ( plus your symptoms) indicate that the functioning of your heart is compromised in some way. Since the top number is good, it may simply be that you need to take some medication after all tests are run. In any event, don't engage in any guesswork. Have it seen to immediately ( as in tomorrow or the day after for the very latest) and don't take any chances at all with your health. It is better to be safe than sorry.
