really? I always thought 120/80 was ideal and the best and anything above or bellow that was bad.

blood pressure is how hard blood pushes against artery walls and 110/70 is great. Your pulse pressure is still 40 which would be the same for 120/80 anyway. If you ever fancy swapping your very healthy arteries for mine, please give me a shout :)

I just hate the fact I am not at the perfect 120/80 I am at 110/70 which I am not sure if that was ever a normal for me..I normally get higher BP because when I go to the dr I get soooo nervous. I did take an ativan earlierbut they don't help me much..I am always nervous about my health

AND the ativan was a quarter of a .5ml idk if that can cause your BP to be low or if being under weight could contribute to that issue aswell

Please don't worry.  Your blood pressure is fabulous and many people would be thrilled to have it.

If you're not symptomatic, then less is better.

Mine is 105/60 and it's not a problem at all. Sometimes after exercise I can dip below 100 and then I can get a little dizzy when standing up too quickly.

Nothing to worry about at all. It's not like 120/80 is optimal, it's the treatment target, in other words, if BP is less than 120/80 with meds, there are no gain in make it any lower. But we are young, and our blood pressure will increase with age. So it's nice that we can get a higher BP later without getting hypertensive.
