Hi, I went to the Dr. last week to get my blood test results. All came back great Sugar a little high at 109. Problem is my BP was 180/68. He ask is I had shortness of breath or chest pains. I've had no symtoms at all. He said he wants to check me in 3 mos. Is that too long for this high of BP? I've lost a little weight. Have been walking 4 miles 3 to 4 times a week. I went to the drug store a couple times and have it taken and its been 160/ 80 both times about 4 days apart. Should I see him sooner and demand more extensive tests? I'm worried there may be a prob. Why would my BP jump like tis. I hav'nt changed my habits at all. Thanks Larry
