Is frequent low blood pressure an indication of heart problems?
Is frequent low blood pressure, i.e.; 92/62 for example, any kind of indication of possible heart deficiency?

Some, but not all patients with a weak heart have low blood pressures. Many young healthy persons have similar blood pressures. It is not a reliable indicator of the condition of your heart.
