  • Blood pressure varies a little bit naturally. When you exercise, it goes up. When you rest, it should return to a normal range (120/80).
  • In people with high blood pressure, the pressure never goes down to normal, even at rest.
  • A blood pressure higher than 180 (top) or 110 (bottom) can be very dangerous. If this happens, contact your doctor right away or go to the emergency room.
