1. Never trust a digital B/P cuff, they are notorious for sucking. Your resting pulse may very well be that low.If you don't run, your going to get tired when you do run, it's that simple. You said you were 'underweight' exactly how underweight and why? I'd worry more about your overall health, you know, diet and everything. It's worth seeing a doctor for, but take your b/p readings with a grain of salt. Short answer to your question: your not going to die. There's a good chance you've had a B/P this low and a pulse this low for awhile, but never noticed it. Low heart rates and B/P themselves are not deadly, it's why you have it that could be a problem.
