I am 65 year old female. I am 30 lbs overweight. For the last two months my blood pressure has been running high in the 175 to 180 over 99 to 100. I have been under the care of my Dr and we are recording my pressure, should I be concerned about this, more so than what I am. Can you also tell me what the bottom number means if it high. Thank you

Hi! I am a 49 year old female. I have always had normal blood pressure readings. On Friday had went to my GYN for my annual pap, and my blood pressure reading was high . They took 3 readings: 146/96, 142/96, 148/92. I checked it again that night and it was 144/97. Saturday it was 140/103. I did not check it Sunday. Today it is 152/105. Should I be concerned? My GYN said if it continued to be high to call my Internist.
