Systolic higher than diastolic

Q: Is it possible for your systolic BP to become lower than your diastolic? What happens if it does?

A: Systolic blood pressure occurs when the ventricles of your heart contract so it is always the highest. Diastolic blood pressure occurs with the relaxation of the heart between contractions. If your heart can’t beat effectively enough to raise your systolic pressure above your diastolic pressure, you need to speak to a physician.
