I have been stress and having problems here at home to top it off
So do u think I can fly safely my fight is only 2hrs long. I have no other symptoms I feel fine
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
well I have-not taken it in a few months but a few months ago was washing it and it would be around 138/88
138/95. 1135/90
Doctor: Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 3 months ago

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Your BP is now a bit high.
Lower or diastolic one needs more attention.
I would advise to check your BP in the morning again.
If it still remains high, I would advise to take an examination by doctor before flying.
Your dose may need to be adjusted.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

I will try to get the my doc for a appointment but I don't know if he will be able to see me being only*****from me flying im I at high risk if I fly..would you say I can't fly with those bp readings
Doctor: Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 3 months ago

Anxiety, stress can raise the BP.
In morning at resting condition you can have a better picture.
Though it is not an emergency level now, but if diastolic goes above 110, it can be an emergency.
So if you can not see your own doctor, I would advise to visit an urgent care before flying.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
