top number isn't too high, lower number is. Talk to a doctor.

I wouldn't say dangerously high, but high enough to start monitoring your BP and see a doctor regarding it.

I'd say!

Normal is about 120/80....

I wouldn't say dangerously high, considering that 120/80 is considered normal.


Life is good. :)
Ask a doctor!!!

No, it's just right above borderline. It wouldn't be good to have that number all the time, but having it occasionally, such as in times of stress, isn't a big deal.

if your like 7-16 is normal

That is stage 1 hypertension. You will want to begin taking measures to lowering it back to a normal level. The best things to do are losing weight if you are overweight and engaging in cardiovascular exercise at least five times per week. Try to work yourself up to 30 - 60 minutes most days. Beyond that, there are quite a few dietary and lifestyle changes you can make to help lower your blood pressure.

It can be dangerous especially if it keeps being that high. You need to get it checked out immediatly though and check it more frequently because that is higher than what it should be.

I would call a doctor (or hospital). That seems like a pretty small pulse pressure (difference between systolic and diastolic) which could mean your heart is not able to relax completely. Pain could cause this sort of blood pressure but you should call your health care provider just in case.

P.S
Don't worry if you don't have insurance - it's better to go into debt than suffer illness. Also, If you are using a cuff that is too small for your arm it could affect your reading (and if it's digital you might want to check with an analog blood pressure machine).
