Question about Health & Beauty
Those readings aren't bad, although the lower (diastolic) reading could be seen as a bit low according to published guidelines.
Blood pressure does vary through the day, and in your age group is more likely to possibly need management purely because the plumbing is not what it used to be when you were 18 !!
So to set your mind at rest, and to make sure there is nothing serious creeping up, get along to your doctor and ask about normal readings for you.
I see you possibly have your own BP meter, and that is a good idea, I have one also, an Omron (plug there). If so, take that too and ask the doc to calibrate it, that is, verify it is accurate.
