Dizzy: Dizzyness needs to be assessed by detailed history,physical exam and possibly relevant lab testing;the pulse rate and BP may be entirely appropriate in a young healthy person

No: Your diastolic BP is high. You need to see your internist soon to discuss a treatment plan.

A 48-year-old member asked:
What happens if a patient is feeling dizzy & has a heart rate of 140, why is it important to check their blood pressure?

Low?: To see if the dizziness is from low BP (not likely at that heart rate - it's not that fast).
