Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

You have low blood pressure, called hypotension.

Are you having any symptoms?

You may need to raise your intake of salt a little and drink a lot of fluids. A Vitamin B12 supplement can also help.
Your blood should be checked for anemia which can in turn cause low blood pressure. If you have not done this, it's a good idea to talk to your doctor about having your iron levels checked.
