Talk to your doctor: The normal blood pressure can be in the range of 110-130 systolic (top number) with the diastolic number (bottom #) ranging from 60-75. However, depending on your age and other medical conditions it can range higher or lower. High blood pressure can cause several medical emergencies, as well as low blood pressure resulting in dizziness or lightheadedness. Talk to your doctor about this.
