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, my name is Dianne. I have suffered from hypertension for over 6 years. Several medications did not work. My right kidney was removed in November of last year. My bp came down. I am now on only 200 mg of labatalol 2 times daily. I has been increasing. About two weeks ago I experienced and was treated for bronchitis with Z-pack then started Cipro three days ago. However, I am extremely out of breathe now and have muscle pain from my upper neck to my lower back. It feels as though I am bruised to the point I cant even wear a bra. I have tightness in my chest just to the left side. I also feel very tired and have been unable to work because of this and have gained 6 pounds in just a weeks time. Could this possibly be from my kidney. The last test showed 74% function of the remaining kidney. That was in January, It took two er visits with the chest pain for them to say it was bronchitis.
