Hi all, ya I know, its been a while

Yes,  its' been a while, since I have posted anything, and for that I apologize.

I have a Q?
If you typically have an average Blood Pressure reading around 120/80, should you be concerned, if your readings jump up to say, 143/91, for about 1 week?  Note: Along with this comes some chest tightness, though I have an MS Hug, this is a different feeling.

Blood pressure can fluctuate for a number of reasons, including pain.  If you have chest tightness and you don't think it's an MS hug, it may pay to get it checked by a doctor.

Whether the chicken or the egg came first, elevated blood pressure + chest pain = Doctor,

Yes, its something to be concerned about and needs to be get checked out!

MS could be a factor but regardless, for my way of thinking its highly likely to be your heart because..... elevated blood pressure, chest pain, age, gender, new sx to you, typically means heart so its Dr now!

Take care and let us know what the outcome is.

Cheers........JJ
