Are you sure it's 64 / 63? It's dangerous. He should go to the hospital.

Too low blood pressure can cause people to be in shock. Systolic blood pressure below 10.7kPa (80mmHg) can be diagnosed as shock. Shock can manifest as unconsciousness, dizziness, pale, rapid heartbeat, and decreased urine output. If your husband can work normally, a blood pressure of 64/63mmHg may not be his real blood pressure. You should test your husband's blood pressure by different blood pressure monitors or ambulate blood pressure monitors. If your husband feels dizzy, palpitation, etc., he needs to go to the hospital immediately.

Are you sure that reading is correct ?  Did he appear normal at that time?  Thats extremely low. Pass out level.  I would re check that. Also, recheck durning the day for average reading. Many factors can effect his BP. His doctor needs to advise you on this.
MY BLOOD READ 55/90 AND MY DOCTOR SAYS THAT IT IS BETTER TO HAVE IT LOW THAN HIGH, BUT THEY CANNOT FIND THE RIGHT MEDS FOR ME BECAUSE OF MY LOW PRESSURE
Your blood pressure should be 90/55. Your blood pressure is low. Normal systolic blood pressure is between 90 and 139, and diastolic blood pressure is between 60 and 89. Hypotension can be seen in normal people, old people with poor constitution, hypothyroidism, post-operative trauma, heart failure, etc. But if you don't feel dizzy or fatigue, you don't have to worry too much. Generally, thin people will appear low blood pressure. Sometimes, the incorrect use of a sphygmomanometer may make the measured blood pressure low. That blood pressure is not necessarily your real blood pressure. Hence, you should monitor your blood pressure multiple times or by ambulatory blood pressure monitoring.
At the same time, you can take high-quality protein, eat more fruits and vegetables, exercise properly to raise your blood pressure. If you feel dizzy, palpitation, etc., you need to go to a cardiology clinic immediately.
