How high does your blood pressure have to be to have a stroke or a heart attack?
I've had high bp for quite some time and I've always been off and on with the meds due to mostly ins. reasons. after all the dr. visits i've never asked the dr.im 49years old.its 181/131 now but has been higher before

You are at risk for major cardiovascular events, such as a heart attack. High blood pressure is also a risk factor for stroke. You need to listen to your doctor and try your hardest to stay on BP meds.

Make an appointment right now.

My daughter use to have major high blood pressure, readings around 230/145(average).Keep in mind that medications won't do all the work . My daughter switched into a drastic diet called raw vegan. Basically she started eating a raw vegetarian diet. Only after 1 month of diet her BP was down to 170/111(average) after another 6 months her readings were between 120/85 and she was ask to discontinue 2 blood pressure medications. Also we were told to monitor her blood pressure very closely so we got the Omron HEM 711A/C extremely accurate about $40. Now her blood pressure is normal and she only take 1 medication.

Your blood pressure is way to high, it's strange you haven't had trouble already. This will also cause an enlarged heart over time, something that can kill you right out. I suggest very strongly that you see your doctor right away. If he can't get you in after you tell him the problem, then I really suggest you go to the nearest ER and tell them. You are at deaths doorstep.

I don't know exactly but it appears to be high enough to cause concern. I would definitely be worried about a stroke.
You know, if it's a matter of money and insurance than there are other ways that you can try to bring down your blood pressure. This can be at least partially controlled through food and exercise. I would start doing a little research on line if I were you, and start looking for ways to change your diet and find ways to exercise to bring your BP down. Don't just sit around and wait for a stroke to happen. Take charge, as much as you can, of your health so you aren't a premature victim of something that will ruin your life.
High blood pressure can also cause heart disease and kidney failure.
Ask your doctor about diet and exercise too and see if he can refer you to any sources.
I found a lot of good BP control sites by just entering "Blood Pressure Control" into my browser.

This is way too high. You may need additional medication if it's your regular value.

Ask for a 24 hours BP monitor so they can assess your BP throughout the day/night.
