Couldn't find what you looking for?


Last week I went to the doctors and my blood pressure was 118/78. I've always had normal blood pressure (despite a long history of high blood pressure on both sides of my family. Normally my blood pressure ranges anywhere between 113-119/80. I am wondering if maybe the slight drop in the diastolic pressure could be the reason for my feeling dizzy and sort of out of it the last few days? My doctor didnt seem concerned.


Hi Kyolmad,

Your blood pressure is almost perfect, by the book. 1-2 points should not make you dizzy. You'll also find that your BP can differ depending upon which arm it was taken.

Your blood pressure usually varies a bit during the day. Even drinking coffee can temporarily raise your blood pressure.

How dizzy are you? You could possibly have a minor ear infection.

Did you discuss this with your doctor?
