In brief: Low BP
Low blood pressure is not considered as serious as high blood pressure, assuming you do not have symptoms.
A normal blood pressure is when the reading is 120/80. Anything below those numbers is considered low. There is no specific blood pressure reading that is considered dangerously low, as it can vary with different individuals.
