Both you systolic and diastolic number are on the high side. You should have your BP checked by your physician. 13 is not unheard of to have heart desease. twh

It was 150/100 on average and since losin the weight I was taken off and my BP was 110/70. Lately since I have gained 10lbs back it s back up. However if I may on my left side for 2-3 mins and check again it goes way down. I m so scared!

I have a history of high blood pressure. But it has escalated to a rather extreme level. Been monitoring for last 3 weeks. Even w/meds, lowest it has been is 138/91. But as high as 175/119. Today my doctor changed my Diltiazem 120mg xt caps 1per 24hrs, to DilitiazemSR 120mg 12 hour. After I took this med, my blood pressure changed from 150/102/79, two hours later to 169/108/80, then two hours later to 186/113/80. I have asthma also, which I use an inhaler when I have an attack. I mention this because I have developed a cough tonight. I am also on 2 Lisinopril 10mg per day. How high should my BP get before I need to go to the hospital?

My grandfather is 89 years old and is in heart failure. The opening in his arotic valve is about the size of a pin hole and he cannot pass blood through it. He has been in and out of the hospital 8 times since december and is in congestive heart failure. When we found out about this 4 years ago, we did not do the surgery because it was too high risk but now we have no choice but to do it. What are the chances of recovery?

I walked upstairs and was slightly out of breath. I sat down and noticed my heart rate was elevated but no pain or discomfort. I then noticed I could see my heart rate in my eyes as it caused them to pulse. I'm just wondering if that is a problem.
