Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

Normal - ideal - blood pressure is 120/80 but people who are perfectly healthy vary several points up or down.

Your blood pressure of 128/83 is normal although 128 would be considered slightly "high normal". This isn't particularly concerning but you should keep monitoring your blood pressure to make sure it doesn't get any higher. Your headaches may be a contributing factor. Your doctor can help you further.
