I had my annual heath fair at work which includes a biometric screening. Today my blood pressure was 133/88 mmHg which places me in the “Borderline Risk” category. The cholesterol screening was good, although HDL was a little low (not fasted).
I’m a little concerned about the blood pressure result though. My first thoughts were I was fatigued from Spencer +2 yesterday and that I was psyching myself out for the needle pinch that followed, but the nurse took the BP again at the end of the visit and it was 133/85 mmHg, not much different. Could it just be fatigue? I plan on testing more frequently to monitor this, but I also don’t know if there is really an concern here. I read through the @Captain_Doughnutman threads and now I’m wondering if I should get a test done. Maybe I’m just overreacting too. I’m not looking for medical advice, just wanting to hear the other members’ experience.
