Went for a routine check at the hospital and as advised to make an appointment with my GP as my blood pressure was high. I had it checked with the nurse a few times and it was high 158/101.
I have to wait for a 24 hour blood pressure monitor but wont get this untill 13th May so they said for now they will check it every week.
Why did they dot give me something for it now rather than wait until mid May to get the 24 hour test done, Apparently they fit you with a mini blood pressure checker that monitors your blood pressure over 24 hours.
I have bought one of those home checkers and its still around the same. They don't think its the meds doing it but I feel concerned as to why they couldn't give me something now.
Is 158/101 something to be concerned about as I haven't had any symptoms of having high blood pressure, its scary and hope it doesn't go up any more.
They asked if I had debt problems or stressed with anything I said no everything seems to be fine at the moment.
Looks like I will have to wait until mid may to get the 24 hour test done.
Anyone else here have high blood pressure or have had it in the past? Hope you are all doing ok.
