bp numbers

my blood pressure is great during the day, but goes up at night.  Top number is high and the lower number is low.

150 is quite high, diastolic pressure is quite low, for resting state. Could it be that you were, previous to the measurement, very active?
During day values are perfect.

Anyway, for a correct indication of your blood pressure, you have to do several measurements and average them. As bp can vary during the day, a single measurement does not mean much.
