Is my blood pressure too low?

Posted , 1 user is following.

I've been told multiple different things from multiple different people about my blood pressure. I'm currently 18 years old and have been suffering with dizzy spells and lack of concentration and have been told by a few nurses that my blood pressure is too low and to go to my local gp, I've seen a few separate gps and they've all told me it's normal for my age and that they can't do anything. My average blood pressure is around 79/50 however a few times a week I'll check it and it has gone down to 74/68 as well as 69/32 as I said my blood pressure is usually in the 70's/50's margin but this is a daily occurrence for me but my blood pressure does go lower than this multiple times a week. I have had spells of fainting and did once faint at the hospital where I was told it was too low and to see a gp. I'd be grateful for any advise/info, thanks.
