Actually: That blood pressure is within the normal range. If the top number drops in the 80s and you are dizzy then you shoulld seek care.

Hypotension: Low blood pressure is not a problem if you are not having symptoms. If you are feeling faint or passing out then you need to be seen. Drink fluids.
Dr. Andris Radvany

With symptoms: Sounds like you have symptoms. The dizziness sign your blood pressure is too low. Ankles swollen fluid retention consistent with congestive heart failure. Thats not right in a 44yo. You need to get checked out by a doctor urgently. If you can't get in the next few days the er is the place for you. An urgent care could start the process and wouldn't cost as much as the er.
