You're blood is rising up high. The diastolic pressure (which is the denominator) is above normal range of 90. Avoid eating foods that are rich in salts (sodium) because it can trigger your kidney mush worst than before. It is also responsible for the fast arising of your Blood Pressure.

You should see a doctor IMMEDIATELY and ask for three medications for your BP including a diuretic. You'll be dead in two years if you don't do something about it NOW. Every day you delay will damage your heart and brain. You don't want to be senile do you?

That's very bad. You should see a Dr. & possibly get meds.

If you are taking your blood pressure in a store, you really can't trust these machines. They are not calibrated.

If you are taking your blood pressure at home, make sure you are sitting straight up with your feet flat on the floor (do not cross your legs). Blood pressure taken in the right arm will be higher than your left arm.

You should seriously consider going to your Physician for the high blood pressure, normal blood pressure is 120/80. You may need to be placed on medications for hypertension.

Other symptoms which warrant ER visit, chest pains, headache, nausea, back pain, etc.

180/130? Uhm, that is insanely high blood pressure, are you sure you read it properly? If so I'd go to the hospital immediately!

According to the American Heart Association blood pressure should ideally be 120/80 or less. A reading over 120/80 up to 139/89 (which is what you were originally asking about) is considered prehypertension, and above this level (140/90 or higher) is considered high (hypertension).

Your blood pressure reading of 170/110 is something you should be concerned about.

As you already have kidney problems you need to take this very seriously. High blood pressure, left untreated, can lead to hardening and thickening of arteries, heart attack due to blocked arteries, weakening and enlarging of the heart, stroke, and damage to, or failure of, the kidneys.

You may be able to lower your blood pressure somewhat through lifestyle - increase your exercise, lose weight and quit smoking (if you are overweight or smoke), reduce your stress, and limit your salt intake. More than likely you will also require some blood pressure medication to bring your pressure down.

Don't put it off - make an appointment to see your doctor right away.

Take care.

That's sky high! You should go see a doctor so they can put you on some strong drugs to lower that asap. That's dangerously high, you should probably be more like 135/70

You have got Stage 3 Hypertension.
When the kidney arteries become narrow, less blood flows to the kidneys. The kidneys mistakenly respond as if your blood pressure is low and give off hormones that tell the body to retain salt and water. This causes your blood pressure to rise.
Many different diseases can cause narrowing of the renal arteries. Hardening of the arteries from high cholesterol is one of the most common. Most patients have the typical risk factors for atherosclerosis, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
Fibromuscular dysplasia is another cause, particularly in women under age 50.
Consult a Nephrologist.
