My doctors have watched my high BP go up and up for the past 8 years and finally I have been sent to a cardiologist for testing. I got the diagnosis of Malignant Hypertension and they started me on yet another heart medicine (that makes two heart meds and two BP meds daily and I'm 57 yrs old.). My BP is still staying around 165/102 most of the time. My 90 yr old neighbor is doing better. It doesn't take much for my BP to spike to well over 200 on the top number. The highest that I recorded was when I went into the hospital feeling horrible and they said it was 225/120. I constantly feel horrible. They have now said that my heart muscle is hardening and not flexible like it needs to be. The more I don't feel good, the more sedentary I become and the more weight I gain. That just starts the cycle again as you can imagine.
