Yes, really high!! When I was in hospital last year they were trying to raise it to 120.

Oh Jesus Christ!
120 is ideal. Her BP is not good.
Question Author
Bloody hell.didnt realise it was that bad.
What's her lifestyle like?
My mums was 220/110 and she was signed off work, given medication & lifestyle advice .... it came down... that was a few months ago.

She had a monitor on for 24hrs too.

Has to get that under control as she is a sitting duck for strokes or heart attacks xx
Question Author
She doesn’t drink or smoke
I'm the opposite. Last time I had mine done it was 78/26...doctor looked shocked.
Smow...is she over weight?
Question Author
Yes she is overweight
Don't panic, they will already have brought it down with meds. She will mostly get lifestyle advice and be referred back to her GP for monitoring and ongoing medication.
oh goodness...what exactly did you put in that birthday cake ? hmmm.... hope she is better now...too much excitement
I may be wrong,but I that that you were a member of the nursing fraternity or worked around patients, if that is so, then i am pushed to understand the need for your question.
If not, then I suppose that is of a lesser surprise.
smow's no' a nurse !
Murray...right, then ignore my comments.

She’s back home on meds. They were worried she was going to have a stroke , it was so high. Not sure they really know why. Apart from being a bit overweight she eats healthily, doesn’t smoke, rarely drinks, so I’m not too sure what causes really high blood pressure.
Does she know her family history, it could be genetic.
-- answer removed --
I had that problem a couple of years ago, ended up in A & E several times with BP at nearly 200 . I had a procedure called Cardiac Ablation where they closed up a hole in my heart which was causing the problem , no problems since .
bodeker......not in any way questioning your post, but do your really mean that your BP was 200 or was that your heart rate.
I ask as i cannot think of a reason for treating high BP with Cardiac Ablation, although I can think of a good reason for treating tachycardia (fast heart rate.)
