Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Your blood pressure is very low compared to your normal BP. This can be due to the electrolyte deficiencies if you have diarrhea, vomiting. Also BP lowering medication can be an issue as well. Underlying bacterial infection can be another cause. Next important thing is adrenal gland insufficiency. Lack of cortisol can cause drop in blood pressure. Heart disease is another possibility.
You should go to the ER for further evaluation.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
