To be put on medication, the right sided reading (the 140) needs to be above 150 consistantly, or the left sided reading (the 90)needs to be above 100. Your blood pressure
is none of these things. Blood pressure
can be increased due to some little things like being rushed, checking out a cute guy/gal, going up stairs, being emotional, pre-menstral, anxiety, upset of any kind, excited, etc. Some people get higher because they hate having their blood pressure taken.
