    Your Lower figure diastolic 95 is the important one is when the heart relaxes when blood is released into the vessels, if your pulse is fast tachacardic it is due to stress possibly pressure of work.. If you are normally 80/50 this is quite low unless you are an athlete.. You need your BP monitored regularly 6 monthly.. Do you feel dizzy or light headed on standing up?  Normal readings average 130/80..See your Nurs/GP.

    that light headedness is your low BP.. You say you are active what do you do? This maybe the reason for the low reading.. Sleep is important for rest.. We need at least 8 hours per night. Proper hot meals for nourishment of the blood.. Smoking is not good cut down.. Go to quitters and reduce with their support.. Is Free.

    See your GP ask for these tests:

     Foot Doppler to check circulation/ECG /blood test/BP/chest-X-ray.. MOT

    Do you get palpitations or what feels like a irregular heartbeat ... Do you feel breathless? Whats the colour of your fingernails/lips like?

    Redblue or pink? This is a sign of lack of O2 in the blood. Your skin colour pale or ruddy? Sorry abt 20 Q's

    LOW BP is almost ALWAYS associated with DEHYDRATION.

    Start drinking at least 8 glasses of WATER a day.

    And see if you feel better.

    Thats good that all those tests came out good.  I'm telling you it is WATER intake....drink more water for a couple days and I bet you feel better...It really is amazing how much water affects our organs....and brains.
