Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 1 year ago

OK

That's a little too high for it to just be from stress

And we're assuming there's nothing wrong with your monitor of course

I suggest you see your doctor and have it checked out in his office

If it truly is that high you'll need high blood pressure medication

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
