HELP! my blood pressure was 134/95 and the dentist sent me straight to the clinic. How bad is this ? I had an appointment with the hygenist yesterday and my blood pressure was 134/95 nad then I had another appointment with the dentist, it was still high so they sent me over to the clinic, where they also said that it was high. I now have a leaflet to keep track of my BP readings and I have to go in all the time to have it checked. Am I going to have a heart attack, should I be concerned about who is going to take care of my kids if I do. How bad is this?
