What does it mean when the systolic and diastolic numbers are very close? I was told by RN that these numbers need to be 30 points different. My pressure stays high on bottom (diastolic is 92 - 105) and keeps getting lower on top. This morning it was 112/98. Does anyone know what this can mean. Currently I am taking HCTZ 50 mg a day.
