    The bottom number is known as your diastolic blood pressure (DBP) & when your diastolic pressure is over 100, that's not good.  A DBP of 105 is not an immediate emergency, but this needs to be corrected, because a long term DBP this high will lead to problems such as left sided heart failure.  Make sure that your BP monitor is accurate.

    That 105 number is very worrisome.  Get to a doctor as soon as you can and demand immediate and effective treatment to get this under control.
