This is not ER worthy is it ?

ok so i just asked a ? about my blood pressure being in the 200 s over 120 s for the last couple of days, and a couple mentioned going to the ER...it isn't that bad is it? it was 203/125 today. I m not overweight (110 lbs) and am only 18, but it could be partly due to my kidneys. I try to convince myself that my machine doesn't work, but i had other people do it and they actually both got under the 120/80

Yeah, you really need to go to the emergency room dude. This isn't a joke. You're blood pressure is WAY too high. Please for those who care about you get to the nearest emergency room.

I know excessive urination is a sign of diabetes, but what does excessive mean, exactly? Does it mean every 15 minutes? Or does it mean every 4 hours? It seems as though no one, not even any diabetics on this site can explain that to me. Being the biggest hypochondriac in the world, I find myself having the urge to pee every 2-3 hours... yet, when I do not think about peeing, I go about every 4-6 hours. Do I have a problem? Can someone please give me a little information about this issue? This is the only diabetes symptoms that I have, and I know what all of them are. Thanks, guys!

In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.

I have a rash in my groin and my body is always itchy. For about 2 years I had rashes on both my feet. It seems to have cleared now but I still have to apply dipresone everyday. I take medication for high blood pressure - Micardi Plus, Zanidip and Spiractin. Are any of these causing my rash problems?

My husaband is 65 years old nad he told me that last night he experienced a sudden waive of dizziness, enough that he actually fell down. He has high blood pressure and on meds, but never diagnosed with anything else. He is currently working out of town and lives alone. I am very concerned. What could that be?

I feel kind of silly asking this, but my heart rate (resting) has been elevated all day -- ranging from 107 early am, up and down from 130 - 180 most of the day. I've been having episodes like this for several months, but not this bad or long lasting. I guess I'm just not sure what to do. Bp avgs 120/78 - 130/88.
