Four readings on my home BP machine were as follows:
121/72
129/71
125/71
131/72

Pulse was 50-51 bpm each time (although my Fitbit showed 55-57).

My systolic is usually a bit above "normal", and my diastolic is usually below "normal". The problem I have is that, when my blood pressure is at or below "normal" (120/80), I tend to experience lightheadedness upon standing. When I've been fat with higher blood pressure, this didn't happen. I suppose smooth, flexible arteries are worth the possibility of fainting.

An interesting phenomenon after coming to from lightheadedness is a sense of hyper-reality (no idea what to call it) and visual clarity. It's as if things seem more real and edges of objects seem more defined. Odd feeling.

Had my BP taken often late last year, must have been normal as no comment was made.  I've have had similar experiences to Kavik, the light-headedness lead to me falling over unconscious a handful of times but lately it's not been that extreme.  The 'sharpened' vision is indeed strange.

Damnit, why am I seeing this thread after having my blood pressure checked...not good. 148/88. Never ever seen it this high and have it checked once a year. Maybe didn't help having that stiff cup of coffee before the test and a horrible diet recently coupled with work stress and a lack of sleep...

Alright gonna eat veggies, cut back on sodium and caffeine for a few days and have it checked again.

Coffee before a doc visit always renders off results. You should be fine... hopefully.

The 'sharpened' vision is indeed strange.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I've never heard anyone else describe this before.

The light-headedness lead to me falling over unconscious a handful of times but lately it's not been that extreme.

I've only "fully" passed out once many years ago, but I frequently have to brace myself against a wall or take a knee while my legs (and sometimes whole body) do a jello twitch thing and my vision is occluded by dark ink blots.
