If your B/P was high one or two times, and you were under stress, pain or anxiety, they might not be concerned. If YOU are concerned, you should moniter your own B/P and write it down. Take it at different times during the day and then bring your readings back to your doc. Most docs these days will not ignore a reading higher than 120/80, since studies have shown they should actually be lower than that. But, you need to have more than one or two readings recorded.

Sir i got an episode 3 months back where i got acute pain on my right back side then I felt I am fainting , a lot of anxiety and short breathness , my bp reading were 200/ 120 that time and I also felt burning sensation in my stomach .Doctor prescribed atenol 50 mg and gastroc medicines, then after 10 days i found my bp lowered upto 90/60 and my physician told to stop using medicine since then i am doing regular bp check up every week. 80% times my bp reading comes 130/80. Some time it goes 140/90 , 150/80 ,160/100,130 /90. So is it normal that bp reading can differ in this way , or i need to take medicine coz it makes me anxious .I also have loss of appetite problem

What would cause a rise in blood pressure. For years I test at 140/80. Now is 160/100. Rise took place in less than 1 month. Is staying that high unless Lorsartan is doubled. I was switched from Lantus to Basaglar in Mar. Higher readings started about a month or so later.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
