    Yes that's High Blood Pressure but you don't have to start medication right away. Please take few readings and tell us about them, take them at differnet times and days.

    If it's falling from that level you don't have much to worry about. Even consistent bp of 145/88 is not necessarily too high, depending on your age.

    If your relatively young then, yes, it's a bit worrying. But if you're 60 it's not too bad.

    Like Michael says, take readings over a length of time and get a better idea of what's happening. But maybe you've done that already if you know that it's falling. Best wishes that it will continue that way!
