My blood pressure just now measured at just over 200/100. I am on statins, indapamide, perindopril. Small aspirin and pizotfen (for migraine). My bp is usually fairly normal for my age, 79. No stress. Do I need to take quick action? I feel more or less OK. Never had ischaemic problems.

Hi, question on BP . I am a woman, age 53, cholesterol 182 (mostly good, not on meds). I exercise daily (aerobic, some weights), have vasovagal syncope . Cardiologist says it is a mild case. I had been having low BPS like 90/50, some dizziness . No meds, told me to hydrate, increase salt intake. Stress test/echo last July was normal. Lower BP number he said did not adjust as quickly as he would like, but said not to be concerned. He said it often indicates that I will have high BP at some point in my life. No weight issues but I do have chronic fatigue . SO - here s my question. I went to the MD for another reason and my BP was 135 over 88. He said it was a little high but I am always very nervous at the MD office. He took it again a minute later and it was 120/80. He said to check it at home from time to time. So yesterday I checked it in the afternoon and it was 137/90. I feel like I am having some anxiety - probably over this! I checked it after exercising today (15 mins after) and it was 126/80, pulse 70. What does this all mean? pre-hypertensive?

Hi, my blood pressure has been up at some of my antenatal checks. I am now at week 34, going on 35 this Wednesday. I was due to visit my GP today but she is away for a couple of days so I have just taken my own BP at home. It is 155 over 74 - I know the top fig is fairly high but should i be concerned??
