There so many different opinions as to what is an 'ideal' blood pressure I am confused.
My GP says I should have a reading of 120/80, but a surgeon in the hospital said that as long as I was under 150/90 he was happy to operate as I was fine and healthy. I try and try to relax but each time I go to the surgery either my pills are increased in strength or another one is added (with additional side effects). Its impossible for me to reach 120/80, but I can manage 150/90 - I am 77. Is there a range of acceptable numbers - and if so, what are they?
