Current blood pressure: 170/105. Do I need to go to the ER? It s usually around 140/90, but none of my doctors have ever prescribed meds to manage it. Over the last week, I ve not felt so good, so I ve begun to monitor my BP at home. Within the last few days, its been around 170/105. I m trying to get in to see one of my docs in the next few days, but is this BP high enough to need to make a trip to the ER?
