Well, normal isn't a term I'd use here--more like what would be acceptible, but your blood pressure shows a systolic hypertension that isn't normal. If these symptoms are new for you you need either to call your doctor now or get to and emergency room as soon as possible because you may be having a stroke or a threatened stroke.
