Hello all, I thought that I would share some information with you, I went to see GP again last week and he is great, I have a phobia of having bp taken and panic about my high bloodpressure all the time! he spent ages with me explaining that high bloodpressure on its own is not as serious as we may think and they monitor bp as over a long period of time it can cause problems and can cause problems in older people, he said it is a risk like smoking and and high BP over a short period of time is what your body is made to cope with! High BP over years can cause problems but not really over days or weeks, often bp can be a sign of other health problems that is different but on its own can be reduced and we all will have times when it goes high it's normal for humans to do this. Please don't take this as medical advice but he made me feel much calmer, I wanted to share with you all as there is so much panic and worry
