My bp yesterday was 145/87 which I hear is borderline HB- However, what I dont understand is this... it says the average hypertensive has above 145 and over 90 diastolic- well mine was 145/87 so wouldthat still put me as a borderline hypertensive sufferer? never had it before and my readings with DS were always 120/70 or 80... MW claims its because I was nervous and everytime she took a reading (she did it 3 times) I panicked all the more because I was watching the monitor going up and up- (i was so hoping it'd go down which is why I was stressing) what I would like to know is, is the reading something to be worried about??? I of course worried because I knew what an average reading should be, but MW put it down to anxiety... still, that doesnt comfort me much since I know the BP was higher than average. I asked if it was high, she said no (bit confused about that)anyone have similar experiences??
