Blood Pressure Too Low?

The past 2 nights, when I have taken my BP while laying down on both my left and right side, it has been 86/51. I am normally 110/75, so this concerns me.

Is this too low?

No, your BP is usually lower when lying down, and you're within a good range.

Yesterday night one of my college mate (female around 20years) died. The family say that the death was due to low BP. She was active and normal in the college yesterday, so, is it possible for a person to die of low BP in such short time. And what is there any medications for low BP?.
