Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

Hypotension is the medical term for low blood pressure (less than 90/60). Low pressure alone, without symptoms or signs, is usually not concerning to most doctors.
Common causes of low blood pressure include a reduced volume of blood, heart disease, and medications.

The cause of low blood pressure can be determined with blood tests, radiologic studies, and cardiac testing if your doctor deems necessary.
