Welcome to HCM
Good Day
The BP should be checked after taking rest fir 15 minutes and no stimulant like coffee, chocolate, energy drinks etc. have been taken in the previous 1 hour. Besides the repeat check of the BP needs to be done after an hour as well. Try this once keeping in mind the above criteria and then note down the BP as many factors can increase the BP falsely. 114/99mmHg indicates Stage II mostly Diastolic hypertension probably because you had a high salt meal. Nothing to worry, isolated levels can be elevated and distinguished early commonly. Check the BP correctly and then re-enter it here. What is your age. Do you smoke cigarettes. Do you drink alcohol. Are you a Diabetic.

My father died with an enlarged heart (he had difficulty breathing and was unable to get a heart/lung transplant). I am 58 and am concerned my blood pressure is becoming a problem. The other night after work it was 145/110. This morning it was 125/101. I have an arm cuff monitor and sometimes I just take it to see what's happening and it can be 125/85 or lower systolic. I am mainly concerned about the diastolic as I have read this is the real indicator. Should I be seeing a doctor?

I was feeling short of breath and out of sorts. Took my blood pressure at a pharmacy and it measured 105/40 - took it again and it was 105/45. I have always had hypotension, but this is pretty low, I think. I have had readings of 115/60 most of the time. That's when I really feel good. Or 85/55 (feel slow) I am a senior citizen past 60.
In mostly good health. Do not drink or smoke, Also have hypothyroid. Taking natural remedy for that.
