(1) Has it changed suddenly to these levels?
(2) How much do you weigh? - and how tall are you?
(3) Nobody's B/Ps "go up to...anything" and stay there... they vary all day, in a cyclic fashion.. Can you take proper, repeated measurements, at the SAME time (11.30 a.m. -before you've eaten lunch) on the SAME arm, at the same place, using the same monitor, while sitting in the SAME position, and also then take similar readings -say for instance, at bedtime, when you're ready for sleep? That's the first step to start to getting readings that mean anything. But you should record your pulse-rate at the same time, because without that, the pressure readings alone are almost meaningless.(Despite all the cr * p you'll read here on Answers.)

Hello, my name is Dianne. I have suffered from hypertension for over 6 years. Several medications did not work. My right kidney was removed in November of last year. My bp came down. I am now on only 200 mg of labatalol 2 times daily. I has been increasing. About two weeks ago I experienced and was treated for bronchitis with Z-pack then started Cipro three days ago. However, I am extremely out of breathe now and have muscle pain from my upper neck to my lower back. It feels as though I am bruised to the point I cant even wear a bra. I have tightness in my chest just to the left side. I also feel very tired and have been unable to work because of this and have gained 6 pounds in just a weeks time. Could this possibly be from my kidney. The last test showed 74% function of the remaining kidney. That was in January, It took two er visits with the chest pain for them to say it was bronchitis.
