Talk to your Doc about something like Lexapro . Great for anxiety and stress. Really helped my pressure.

Have you been anxious over anything lately, or in pain?  My blood pressure was about 167/114 without my meds.  After an injury to my upper arm my blood pressure went way up due to the pain.  Let me know what it reads today.  Ally
