Your BP isn't necessarily low for a young women, but if it's causing lightheadedness or fatigue it's problematic. I assume you're not taking any medications that could lower your BP, not pregnant & have no known heart pathology. . I would like to know your average resting heart rate, presence or absence of anemia, thyroid status & results of a complete metabolic profile blood test. See your MD
