Re: What do I make of this??

None of those BP readings are that terribly bad. But, when you are sitting at those machines reading about all the risks, they make it sound like you are going to die tomorrow if you get anything above a normal reading. And, besides a doctor's office, those machines are the next most stressful way to have your blood pressure taken. There you are, sitting in front of all these people with your arm stuck in this thing. It's even worse if your spouse is standing behind you looking over your shoulder.

In any case, those symptoms sound more like anxiety from worrying about things. Or, something else. They certainly aren't high enough to be causing any of those kinds of symptoms. Besides, those symptoms would be more associated more with low blood pressure than high.
