Looking for a little input here regarding some blood pressure readings. I know there was a reason post in GAL, but I can’t find it after searching.
Anyways, had some caffeine at 5pm. I was having an assessment done, and had my blood pressure read probably around 6:30pm. It was measured 3 times and was around 180/80. I was told this was high (well it seems like the systolic is really high, the dialostic wasn’t too high, but the difference between the two was high was a concern.
About 2.5hrs later, I went to a pharmacy and used their machine.
First reading: 172/73
Walked around, waited 5 mins.
Second reading: 155/72
Pulled my arm out, relaxed.
Third Reading: 143/72
I think as long as the dialostic stays under 80, its not too much of a concern, but the systolic was so high. Also, I got 4 drasticaly different readings.
Any input? Thanks
