yes, this is very very bad
you need to go to the A&E and see a doctor right away
and get started on blood pressure medications right away to decrease your blood pressure
and also to start cutting down on the salt intake you are taking in
and stop alcohol and smoking
if you are overweight, you need to cut your calories and exercise to loose weight as well.
you also need your cholesterol levels checked as well.
do you have an A&E department close to you where you can go?
o dear I am too afraid to go to a and e. I live alone so i wouldn't know whaat to do.perhaps it will just go down by it self.
you can't trust your blood pressure to just go down by itself.
this is a dangerous blood pressure.
do you have a GP doctor you see?
my cholesterol was 7.8 the doctor sent me letter to say that this was high but did nothing about it.
that is unfortunate
to lower cholesterol, the best is to avoid fatty foods, and fried foods.
and to eat more foods like oatmeal, fiber, olive oil, avacados, nuts, salmon once or twice a week
to help lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol.
i am over weight . I don't drink or smoke. iam also house bound.
anyway you can get a visiting doctor to see you in your house.
you should call up a GP and request a home visit because you are home bound.
thank you there doesn't seem to be much I can do. thank anyway. I must admit it's a bit scary.
I know it is scary.
don't let your fears keep you from getting the medical care you need.
best of luck to you
