This is a normal low variant, anything below 120 is prefectly fine UNLESS your syptomatic. You were correct in being told (I presume by your Doctor) that this is normal, it is.

hi,thanks for query.If you are not on drugs to lower blood pressure this can be accepted.In case you have problem like headache,giddiness then you need to look for the cause and get treatment for this.Take plenty of liquids during the day and take light diet.Keep measuring your blood pressure on regular basis.
wishing you good health.

My legs were really weak and so I went to bed early last night. Today I took my blood pressure and it was still 97/54. I have never had that low of blood pressure. Today I still feel really tired. I lost 30 pounds in 2 months because of being sick and not wanting to eat. I was 160 now I am 130. My blood pressure usually is about 115 to 120/64.

I have recently been taking my blood pressure and I have noticed it increasing from 110/70 (normally) to 127/97. I have been taking it at varied times of the day and it seems to be staying in the same range. My mother had high bp and her 1st heart attack was at 52. I am 54. I am slightly overweight. 5 5 160lbs. I eat a normal diet and exercise a couple of times a week. I am a non-drinker and non-smoker. Should I consult my primary care physician. Thank you.
