Is 192/104 BP dangerous ?

I was at my mother-in-law s house and she has to monitor her blood pressure daily, and I checked mine while I was there and it was 192/104. Is there any quick fixes - I tried magnesium and it didn t help.

At what blood pressure reading should you go to the hospital? My Mom s bp was 192 over 115...should she go to the hospital? She is a spinal cord injury patient and she cant walk.

hi, I will be 40 weeks pregnant in 2 days, and my blood pressure has been running kind of high. I was feeling bad today and checked it and it was 150 over 104 and pulse rate was 116. I went to the hospital and they sent me home, for the second time in a week. Of course when I got there and laid down, it got a little better. Anyway, the doctor said that this wouldnt hurt my baby to have this high of pressure, and that it would only be bad for me. And she also said that she really wouldnt be worried unless it went to 200 over 110 or 120, and she would only be worried for a stroke. My question is, should I believe her? She said I didnt have to be on bed rest and that what I did wouldnt really matter. Im only worried for my baby, and I obviously dont want to wait until im on the verge of a stroke to seek help. What do you think?

I went to the doctor the day before yesterday. My blood pressure was 160/104. He put me on BP meds and would not let me leave until My BP was below 100. I have been on BP before but ran out and forgot about it. Now my BP is 176/122, I have taken 3 10mg lisprinsoral. Is this dangerous?

Hello. I am a final year medical student. My mum had her BP taken last week and it was 180/130. She bought a blood pressure monitor yesterday and it has been reading 220/150 relatively consistently since (normal BP readings on rest of family), she has no headache/visual problems. She has rang the doctors-on-call and the nurse told her to wait and see her normal GP in working hours (this means waiting 48 hours). I am worried about malignant hypertension - should I persuade her to go to A&E?

I am a 23 year old man with high blood pressure and a high heart rate. I have for the last two years been suffering from frequent urination and very loose stool. I usually have to go once in 45 mins. I recently have lost the sensation of having to urinate alltogether. It is really scaring me. I have infrequent abdominal pain in front of my left hip and lower back pain too. I am 6 feet tall and weigh 350lbs. I have had my blood tested for diabetes and it came back with great blood sugar. I have also had my prostate looked at and it looks fine. My kidneys were checked and they were fine too. The doctors in a hospital and my personal doctor basically said we don t know whats wrong with you . This is very scary and uncomfortable. I can t work anymore because of this and it s gotten so bad that I can t even leave my own home sometimes because I have to go to the bathroom so much... When I go, it s also a good amount of each, not just a dribble. I don t know what else to do but I really would like some help... I don t know where to turn or what to do anymore.
