Depends on degree: Mild or moderate changes in blood pressure will usually not produce any symptoms. However, more significant (or sudden) changes in BP may produce symptoms. Low BP may produce dizziness, weakness or malaise, sometimes with blurry or spotty vision, shakiness or even nausea. Conversely, high BP may produce headache or pulsatilla pressure, sometimes with blurry vision or nausea.

My blood pressure fluctuates from high to low?

Normal?: Blood pressures typically fluctuate, going up and down based on other stimuli in the body. Stress, pain, anxiety for instance, can all make the blood pressure go up. During relaxation, sleep, etc, the blood pressure will be lower. More important than an isolated elevated blood pressure reading is if the blood pressure is constantly elevated as this can lead to problems with other organ systems.
