I've had high BP for nearly 20 years, since I was 27. Just recently it has been spiking and I've been having niggling chest pains and chest tightness on and off. I've also been feeling breathless and my hands and feet have been swelling.
Went to see my GP yesterday who has referred me to a hypertension clinic.
I didn't tell him about my chest pains as I hadn't had them for a few weeks.
That was until last night when they started again ! 🙄
I was told to do home BP readings until my referral comes through and if my readings go above 160/100 then to contact Dr and he will add yet another tablet to the 3 I already take.
And yes you guessed it, my reading this morning was well over the said amount.
It was actually 199/191 😢
So my question is -
Do I ring my Dr as he said or do I cut out the middleman and go straight to A and E ?
Would really appreciate kind replies.
Thank you in anticipation.
