(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.)

In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.
I have a rash in my groin and my body is always itchy. For about 2 years I had rashes on both my feet. It seems to have cleared now but I still have to apply dipresone everyday. I take medication for high blood pressure - Micardi Plus, Zanidip and Spiractin. Are any of these causing my rash problems?
My husaband is 65 years old nad he told me that last night he experienced a sudden waive of dizziness, enough that he actually fell down.

I've been having episodes like this for several months, but not this bad or long lasting. I guess I'm just not sure what to do. Bp avgs 120/78 - 130/88.
