Too high. Way too high. Get yourself to the doctor straight away before you have a stroke or heart attack. But assume that you already know this, which is why you're looking for confirmation.

Are our BP reading ok or should I take it seriously.Confusing a bit? I am 40 and my husband is 52 years and we have a day to day stressful life and have been checking our BP daily. The readings show as follows: 40 yrs - between 100 - 108 Sys and 68 - 72 Dia ( I feel a little dizzy at times ) 52 yrs - between 150 - 159 Sys and 99 - 110 Dia Are we in the range of Hypertension and do we need to take medication? Pls advise Thanks Note: I use BEURER BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR, and i dont know how accurate it is. Is anyone out there using this same item, would like to know if this is a good one, its quiet expensive though, some information would be useful Can I do walking for 30 minutes in my case ( as my BP sounds low ) and my husband cant use a treadmill as he is suffering from Dics. Any advise Pls .thanks Anybody having information about this blood pressure monitor that I am use, as to how accurate it is ?

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
