Need more info: It is certainly a low blood pressure reading. How did you obtain this measurement? Have you had similar readings before? It also depends on other factors, such as your normal baseline, what position you were in when this was taken, medications, and whether you have other symptoms, such as lightheadedness, dizziness, palpitations. Please contact your doctor for further evaluation and assessment.
