Abnormal BP: that BP is low and is abnormal especially if you're feeling lousy with it. You definitely should discuss with your provider - they may find it worthwhile to perform blood pressures in different positions (lying down, seated, standing) or they may clarify how often and when to check your BP at home. Bring your cuff with you to the visit so they can make sure it's accurate.
