Hi All, I've never had to come to this board, but I'm hoping someone can give me some suggestions. I take Diovan for the high BP, and norm is usually 115/78. My BP has been steadily rising since yesterday. Yesterday's high was 135/89. When I woke this morning it was at 146/96. Now, three hours later, it's at 158/99. I have a slight headache and my jaw is slightly achy. I took my temperature and don't have fever, and yes I did take my Diovan. I usually walk in the morning, but decided not to, for fear of passing out or something. I do have a minor cold with an annoying little cough and my face feels hot. On the 28th, I called for an annual physical, and all they could give me was a Nov. 9th appointment. At what point should I go to an ER? Thanks in advance. Really appreciate any suggestions or advice.
