how long do you have to have high blood pressure for to cause or bring on a heart attack. also how high would you have to be before you thought a heart attack or stroke was impending and seek help. also if you have high blood pressure would your pulse and blood pressure increase or decrease just prior to the attack.
My father s pressure has been rising last 2 days, at rest, only the upper number rising steadily but slowly. He just came home from hospital (12-10-13 to 1-17-14) ...(COPD, O2 dropped to 89... DX: double pneumonia... induced coma in ICU, ventilator... slow but steady healthy recovery.... now he s finally home) and NOW his pressure ~the upper number~ has been rising last 2 days. He s been napping a bit more than usual, otherwise no complauints. just took his BP (in bed just woke from nap, but hasn t gotten up) and its 161/98. I m not sure if I should take him to hospital. He isn t complaining, but he tends to do that because he HATES hospitrals. help?? what would YOU do??
my blood pressure was 145/94 and pulse 90 this morning. I have had a headache for a few days. My blood pressure was taken a few months ago and it was 130/90 because of my family history she had me come back and recheck it and it was 134/90. I have to go back in a couple of weeks for another check should I be concerned that it has gone up? I have been having headaches and been very tired lately.
I just had my bp taken and it was 150 over 90. I am a 42 year old male who is dieting at the moment and dropped 15 lbs over the past month and now weigh approx. 210 lbs. (I am 5 ft. 7 in. tall). I am nervous with that reading. I had to go down two flights of stairs to get to the test, could that have had an affect on the reading??
My Dad is 72 and collapsed last year with chest pains. He was told he has an enlarged heart with excessive fat on it and high blood pressure. A year on he is now experiencing chest pains, has freezing cold hands and has severe nose bleeds about twice a week, but refuses to go to the doctor. What could this be?
