Hello
This is still within normal as long as you do not have symptoms
normal is always said to be 120/80 but in effect that is an average and I have normal patients with 90/70 as their normal blood pressure.
If this is your normal blood pressure....and you have no medical problems...then I expect to see you when you are 140 years of age.
good luck

What about my pulse of 95? Normal?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 5 years ago.
Yes anything under 100 technically.
However, this also depends on what your resting pulse normally is.
if it were 50 or 60 and now is 95 I would be concerned about things such as dehydration, which would also explain a lower blood pressure.

Fibrillation..I am not sure what you mean by a slight fibrillation.
If a-fib..this could account for a high pulse and should be treated.

good luck again
