Hello. Thank you for writing.

Your blood pressure is too high - Hypertension Stage 2.
The requirement for a blood pressure Hypertension Stage 2 is generally a value of 160-179 over 100-109. See your doctor about your blood pressure, but don't hesitate to go to the ER to have it checked if you are feeling scared or feeling unwell.

Hello Anon!

Only you know how you feel. Never hesitate to go to the ER if you have any doubts, especially if you are having symptoms or are not feeling well.

We answer questions within 24 hours, so emergency questions should not be posted to our site.

I hope by now you have addressed this with your doctor and are feeling better.
