  • It's fine, that's a normal variation in blood pressure from day to day. It doesn't stay exactly the same. If the top number is over 140 or the bottom number is above 90, that's above average.

  • Dont worry unless it is 140/90 or higher. Your blood pressure can change through out the day depending on your activity level, the food you eat, stress, ect. So you could check it at 8am and it could 117/75 then you could check it at 2pm and it could be 130/83 then check it again at 9pm and it could be 123/70. These are all normal ranges and nothing to worry about. Your doctor will let you know if it is starting to get to high.
