Our expert says:
Check your blood pressure daily ( at a pharmacy or ask the nurse at your GP) for 7 days, then work out the average reading over 7 days. If the average reading is 140 or more at the top and/or 90 or more at the bottom, you probably need anti-hypertensive treatment. If not, the high readings could have been due to other reasons ( pain, anger, stress and exercise all can cause temporary high blood pressure)
