Low Blood Pressure

The ideal blood pressure, which is the pressure exerted by the blood on the walls of the blood vessels, should be 120/80 mmHg. Blood pressure is considered low when it falls below 90/60 mmHg, which is also called hypotension. When the blood pressure is low, you might experience dizziness, nausea, blurred vision, nausea, and fainting.
