As stated above, most pharmacies contain a either a self-serve blood pressure monitor or even a blood pressure consulting room that you can speak with a pharmacist, etc. Otherwise, go to your doctor and as for a physical. This would include your BP.

I have a 53 year old male roommate that has had blood pressure readings of 230/155 what I understand is that 140/90 is the threshold to hypertension, I also understand that left untreated is it will shorten ones life ,will destroy important organs, and is a leading cause of stroke. My friend is reluctant to see a Dr, he s living with me now because I m trying to help him get a new start. I see him turn red in the face and neck and he gets dizzy along with some vision changes. I ve offered to pay for him to go to the Doctor but he s reluctant to take my money . I live in the downtown Kansas City Mo. area . I m afraid he is going to have a stroke and he needs to be educated on what he is actually doing to himself I cant seem to get it through his head , or he just doesn t have that high of regard for his own life. Perhaps if there was a place I can take him where he can be treated on a free basis he might accept that. In the interim what would be the best resource that would in the shortest words tell him how serious this is. The closest I ve seen him to do anything about it is he came home with a bottle of pills (says a friend gave them to him after he listened to him about my concerns. Not an approach I would consider . He almost took one and I suggested I ask a professional first (there are about 20 pills all marked with m 444) I looked them up and they are a blood pressure medication, but as with anything there could be a multitude of ways to correct what is the cause . I m reluctant to let him have them back but he s an adult . I have for the time being got him to refrain from taking one but if I don t get him to the Doctor before he turns red in the face and neck and blurred vision, is this a pill I should keep him from taking by discouraging him. I think I m shy one straight jacket to get done what i know is the answer and that of course is to see a Doctor. Help

I am nervous with that reading. I had to go down two flights of stairs to get to the test, could that have had an affect on the reading??
