Hello, I am a 36yo male with 161/98 - 176/97 BP at the moment. I have just been laid off and have no health coverage. Should I go to the ER? I am more stressed now after reading up on BP. I am 220lbs and 5 10 tall, have had a LOT of stress in the last few weeks, am a smoker, fast food eater (2-3 meals out of the day) AND drink Dr.Pepper (soda) from am to pm, family history oh hypertension on mothers side oh and I have insomnia .
