Re: High Blood Pressure 190/100
Hi lokeshsams85. I'm not a doctor or in anyway medically qualified - just suffer from high BP and the medications .......
190/100 is high particularly the 190 bit but I don't think it's related to your aches but your concern about it could be elevating your BP. But you said "I met a doctor and he took my BP". Sounds odd. Had you relaxed for sometime before the reading?
Sorry - I'm pasting a reply to another thread because my suggestion for you is the same.
I'd buy yourself a monitor and try to relax. Take your BP over the next week or two ..... but only after you've been relaxed for half and hour or so .... never after a pee, or number 2's or for a few hours after eating. Don't start taking it because you feel stressed and want to see what it is. It'll be high and stress you more. Trust me .... I know about these things.
If it is CONSISTENTLY ie not sometimes - over 140/90 - then have a chat with your doc. But personally if it were around that number I'd think carefully about starting on what will be a lifelong commitment to medications. The 140/90 is in many ways unproven (research it if you are interested) and the research re medications are predominently paid for by the pharmaceutical companies themselves who ignore adverse indications and only publish a postive slant .... and that is a whole subject in iteself ..... so take it easy and try your hardest to relax and just monitor it for a week or so before you decide what you want to do next.
How does that sound?
