Thanks heaps for all the advice, I really appreciate it. We rang the doctors office this morning & spoke to the receptionist who was going to talk to the doctor & ring us back but we still haven't heard anything yet. I decided to take the medication anyway.
, as having high blood pressure is not worth risking. I have been getting conflicting readings all morning. I used the same arm & did one reading which was 146. Two seconds later I did it again & it was 122, so I'm thinking maybe our machine isn't accurate? It's hard to know! I don't want to tell the doctor our 'good' readings & really they're not....so confusing lol. The way he checked it in his office was manually, so I'm going by that initial reading.
