  • I was told that when it gets to 140-90 then it gets treated with medication. Mine is always high in the Dr office and so I take it at home too and let them know what the readings are. You should take it when you are calm.

  • 144/82 is okay. I think it is probably up because of your nerves. I have nerve and anxiety issues. The Doctor has always told me that the top number will really rise when you are anxious. They watch the bottom number a lot more than the top. You are fine hun.
