Low blood pressure - should I be concerned?

I recently had a physical and my blood pressure is 90/60, which is the cut-off between low-normal and hypotension. I've fainted four times in my life, but that was before I went paleo. I haven't felt faint since I started eating better. Should I be concerned? Is there anything I should be doing to avoid issues? I'm in my mid-twenties.

How is your body temp doing? You could check when getting up during the morning, at noon and before bed, maybe for some days and see that it's not too low.

Also, do you have proper salt intake? If you're avoiding junk food and sugar, eating iso-caloric or at caloric deficit, eating lots of fruits and veggies and drinking a lot of water or other beverages... you might be in the low sodium side.

My blood pressure has always been that low or lower. It's genetic--got it from my mom, and her father before her. I've asked docs over the years, and none have ever been concerned. The only time I get light-headed is when it's related to allergies.

That doesnt seem too low compared to mine. Now im worried! Mine is usually 82-86/48-52. I know mine is from active bleeding and anemia. Are your iron and hemoglobin levels okay?
