This is what we call a hypertensive urgency, at this degree of blood pressure elevation, particularly since it has never been this high.

If you have any symptoms, such as headache, it is an emergency.

Either way, you need to be evaluated now...it should not be let go.

Urgent care or the ER. ER if any symptoms.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. And, I will be here for any follow up needed.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
