So today at work, there was about five doctors who were checking blood pressure because a lot of my coworkers say they have high blood pressure because work is so stressful. Had my blood pressure taken and it was 160/110. The doctor said that is super high. I have a follow up appointment on Friday with my midwife. I don't think I'm particularly stressing about anything. I'm actually pretty happy. And my diet is healthy since DH is a health guru. I've never had high blood pressure. Would it be lame to say I'm scared
Thats very very high, I would have went to the ER with that sort of reading. I have high blood pressure (dx in May) and I am currently on Methlydopa for mangement during my pregnacy. BP sometimes can not have symptoms but can be very serious. both my parents have high BP as well so it runs in my family, you should you BP taken again and if its high go the the doctor right away.
