Hmm, I'd still get checked out. Do you have a history of any kidney problems?

History of high BP? Or family history? Any chance you could be pregnant now?

Not pregnant.. my gramma had high BP, tools meds to control it.. but last time before tonight I took it, it was 115/80.. its never gone higher than 135/80 something even pregnant.



My head hurts, but its almost like a sinus pressure headache on my left aide.



Now I'm all nervous. Nervous to stroke, lol and nervous to go in and be laughed at.

Take the BP cuff with you. If it's electronic, it will record the readings. Once they see those readings, they better not laugh.

Headaches are definitely a symptoms of high BP. When I had my son (with pre-e) my BP was 200/100 and it was awful. I think you should go to the ER to be honest. I would be afraid of having a seizure or something like that

Agreed.



If it comes down to at least 90, then I think you would be okay to wait and maybe call urgent care tomorrow. Or if you have a weekend clinic you can go to.

Just in case anyone wonders, its much better now after laying for an hour.. 130/92. :)



Or was it 94? Let's say 130/93.



I'm not going to sleep until its under 90, if it spikes again as high as before I'm 911ing it if it just raises I have a babysitter set up and pat will bring me in.

I'm glad it's going down, but definitely keep it monitored. Its really weird that it would go up that high.



Keep us updated.
