My 85 year old grandma had a scare recently, 230/150 and she amazingly didn't have a stroke or anything.

But unfortunately I think your situation is a bit worse.

RIP in peace friend

I got some bad news. If you're relying on the population of this message board to tell you one way or another, hang it up.

You might have have 8-10 people who will answer you honestly.

Get a $30 blood pressure monitor and check yourself in the comfort of your home. It will read lower than at the doctor's or the store.

Go see a doctor soon. Chronic or prolonged high BP can do serious damage to your kidneys and eyesight if the stroke (CVA) doesn't get to you first. The risk is greater if you are diabetic, overweight, or do not practice a healthy lifestyle.

Your diastolic (sys/dia) is fine, anything reapetidly over 90 is time to get it checked out since it could be a serious issue. Your systolic (top #) is a little high, but should come right down once you stop smoking, and further improve with light exercise.

A good rule of thumb is take take measurements 7 times a day for 7 days and if 70% of those readings you have either over 140 systolic or 90 diastolic then you should see your physician.

Thanks for the advice everyone. From doing some more research, it seems the reading is not super high considering the diastolic #. I was really anxious when I went back to measure it the 2nd time too.
I will monitor it for two weeks to see if there are any changes and will schedule a physical soon. Will keep exercising and stick with quitting smoking.
Haven't been to a doctor in years, who knows what else might be wrong with me.

No worries, the collective hive mind of E46F has given you a thorough once over and deemed that you are fvcked and probably will die soon. What's your insurance info so we can bill accordingly?

I recommend a lower-rated cap, should run at a lower pressure and save premature wear on all parts.

****, that is pretty hypertensive. You need more tests done, but start cutting back the fried crap and salts.

BTW, you are 28. Get annual checkups

edit: You're in Canada and a clinic is two blocks away - yet you still don't go?! You are a blithering moron. Please do not pass on your genes.

Go **** yourself asswipe. Maybe I don't like doctors? Maybe I never actually had a reason to go until now? Maybe the question I asked in this thread was "is this an actual emergency or something that can wait a couple of weeks" and I'm using this input and research on Google to make my decision?
Thanks to everyone that actually contributed, with either facts or humour.

There's no shame in having fear/anxiety of doctors or dentists (very common) just don't let your health suffer over it. I never went into the doctor either until I neared thirty. Your doc can tell you now (try to get yourself in for that physical) how often you should go in at this point in your life for "regular" exams. Once you hit middle age they usually want to see you once a year. It's worth an hour or two out of your time to make sure all is well until the next recommended visit.

Canada's "free" medical care also makes every hospital and doctors office so busy that alot of people don't go. I live in the suburbs and have 3 clinics within a 10 min drive and not one of them has a wait under an hour mid day during the week- the weekends forget it you would have to give up 1/2 your day.
Last time I went to the ER it was a 5 hr wait I had a head injury so I slipped past the majority of people with broken bones.
Just because its "free" doesn't mean it's convienent.
And by free it's $70 a month to the govt and $70 a month to a 3rd party for perscriptions,dental and long term disability.
I'm 25 active don't smoke, don't do drugs,and have no health problems
That's $1680 a year after taxes that I can't write off for a young single healthy guy with no one else on the policy I think it's steep.

Should I got to a doctor immediately or is this one of those things where I can try to eat less salt and check again in a couple of weeks? Keep in mind, medical care is free and the walkin in clinic is two blocks away from where I live. I am lazy as **** though.

Background:
I am 28 years old, 5"10, 175 pounds. Used to be overweight at 220 but have dropped down to about 165 over 4 years and now trying to maintain 170-175 while leaning out some more. I lift weights and do 30 minutes of cardio 1-3 times a week. I snowbard and bike in thesummer and try to keep fairly active.

I smoked for over 10 years, trying to quit since Jan 2nd. I've slipped a few times, smoked maybe 20 cigarettes in total this month.
I drink quite a bit every weekend but rarely if at all during the week.

I try to eat fairly healthy, mostly chicken/red meat/veggies/rice/protein shakes/fruit during the week. I don't every put salt on anything but have not been watching my sodium intake specifically. On weekends, sometimes it is restaurant/pub food/take out and rarely very healthy. O

Also, my dad has high blood pressure so this may be hereditary.
If your oil pressure was high you would go to the garrage ,catch your self On go to the doctor, give up the weights un till you get SORTED fred
