My blood pressure was 148/83 with a pulse of 66. I am disappointed. Is this too high?

    It is okay. Do not draw too much conclusions

    Yes, but we don't diagnose hypertension based on one reading. You need to see a trend.

    No, that's OK...anyhow, you don't go by one reading...take a series of readings.

    In the morning.... take 3 readings ( 5 minutes apart) and take the best reading. Do the same in the evening. Do this for a week. Then you'll have a better idea of your readings.

      Yes...he will probably put you on a 24 hour monitor which logs your blood pressure every. 30 minutes (every hour at night).
