If it is the bottom figure it's OK, what is full reading, the top number? if above is 125 it's fine, but if130 it is a matter of concern. OK.

just wanted to know if it is bad I know smoking and salt effect it, are there any other things that would make it high like stress Thanks Take Rampril 1 at night been increased to 1 in the morning as well, do smoke(bad me) have to have extra salt due to another illness. Age 49, female, 5ft 2, 7st 12lb and was sitting. Don t drink Don t have coffee Had cholestrol checked 2wks ago I thought it would be high as my mum brothers and sister have high mine was 5.2 so it was OK. I have to have extra salt due to an electrolyte deficiency have had more in the past 2mths and sodium was up to 132 so that was good as before it was very low even dropping to 124. Anyway just me like to see the funny side of things so take that many pills would make a good rattle ha ha thanks

i am cipro for a bladder infection....on about the last day i started to feel an odd head pressure from temple to temple...3.5 days after cipro i still had the inf. so am on cipro another 10 days...i still have this head pressure on and off all day....had a headache for 2 days while on the 2nd dose but my period started so not sure if that headache was from that because i get bad headaches every month while on my cycle...but i did have this headache and had nausea and vomiting from it.....i still have about 5 days left of cipr. I am concerned the cipro is causing my head pressure....i have told my dr. about it..she told me to get my eyes checked (because my vision gets funny with the head pressure) and she told me to take a decongestant (i don t have a cold or anything). I am concerned about intracranial hypertension that a freind mentioned to me.
