It is not particularly high, the medics dont like the bottom line to go much over 80!

yeah its high

Steaven Hansure
yer wow

That is a high reading.

According to the chart, in first the link below, your top number is stage 2 hypertension, while your bottom number fares a bit better, as "prehypertension".

The second link explains that even though you still have a low-ish bottom number (diastolic), the fact that your top number (sistolic) is high, still puts you in the hypertensive category.

My sword my trade.
Normal blood pressure is 60-90
the upper one it normally 90-120
It could be where you in pain? That makes your blood pressure go up. Lay off the sodium. ;)

Dr Frank
Single blood pressure readings are meaningless. Optimum BP is however ≤ 120/80.

Ideal blood pressure should be below 120/80 milligrams per decilitre, but also reading as 130/85 is considered normal.
If your systolic pressure is 130-139 and the diastolic pressure is 85-89 you are heading into risky territory.
A reading of 140/90 or higher means that it is time to take serious action!!!
Many people control the high blood pressure successfully by taking the natural BP Support Formula such as HYPERCET.
HYPERCET will maintain your normal blood pressure, supports the cardiovascular system to regulate blood flow promotes healthy artery.

Yes, that is too high to be healthy. It should be at least down to 130/80. When I visited my doctor with a reading like this, he became quite concerned, and put me on medication right away, which helped. He also told me to reduce my sodium (salt) intake significantly. Most of my salt intake has been coming from prepared/packaged/canned foods, so I have to cut back on those. I suggest you do a tally of all the salt you eat - it should be no more than 2200mg of sodium a day. Almost all prepared foods have a nutrition label with the amount and percentage (of recommended daily intake or RDI) of sodium.
