High blood pressure (hypertension)
« on: April 30, 2014, 05:18:04 AM »
hi there , few days ago my blood pressure was 95/145 when doctor check it by his monitor and he told me to relax and give me some sedatives but i didnt take it and after one week i revisited my doctor and he measure it again and it was 120/80 and he told me its normal and you dont need medication after that i keep monitor my blood pressure at home and its sometimes high like 90/140 and sometimes 79/130 and different reads , i visited another doctor and my blood pressure was high and he gives me medication to low it and tell me to stop it after 4 days and im doing that now , but im afraid of permanent high blood pressure will lead to heart attack or stork or any health problem , im not smoking or drinking . i exercise once a week sometimes or once every month jogging

You are putting those numbers backwards... (except for the 120/80)
But anyway - 145/95 is really just borderline and 130/79 is actually GOOD.  You don't have to get it real low, that's not any good either!
My dad's kidney doctor says he is doing excellent if it's anything under 140/90.  If you are running 130's over 70's with no medication DON'T take the medication!  You'll end up dropping so low you'll pass out!  That's what happened to my friend's dad!  He had a doctor that wanted him to have SUPER low pressure and he started passing out from taking medication he didn't NEED. 
I have white coat hypertension and get readings of about 160/95 at the office, but at home I'm low 130's over 70's... so that is what they go by, what I get at HOME.
