Your blood pressure is 88 over 80?
What your blood pressure values meanYour blood pressure is: Normal
But regarding your systolic (upper) value your blood pressure is rather: Too low - Hypotension!
If you are getting two different types of classification for your blood pressure it is more likely to chose the one that is considered worse, e.g. if your systolic (upper) value is 'normal' and your diastolic (lower) value is 'high normal', consider 'high normal' as your classification.
