In brief: See your doctor
The definition of hypotension will vary person to person.
It is defined as a low blood pressure reading that makes a person feel poorly. While a young person of low body weight and small size may feel fine with a BP of 90/65, an older person might be sick at this level. Many medical issues can cause symptomatic hypotension including endocrine problems such as a sluggish thyroid and anemia.
