Do I have high BP ?

123 over 93 for a 30 year old female. Is it too high ? Hi. I bought my mum a blood pressure monitor as she has high blood pressure. I just checked mine and it was 123 over 93. I'm a 30 year old female. I read somewhere that the bottom number shouldn't be over 90. So does this mean I have high blood pressure? How do I get it to go lower?

Hi.. Blood pressure changes are subjected to the amount of emotional stress and anxiety levels.. Hence one reading is not essential to confer hypertension status.. Check your BP again after a good amount of sleep, you may find your BP to be under lower reading than this.. Consult your doctor if this remains persistently high to decide on the treatment..
