Ask A Doctor - until I can be seen by my family doctor tomorrow is it safe for me to go to work tonight? - DesiMD Healthcare Services

   

I am 18 years old and I have high blood pressure. I am in cradizem for it and recently it has been very high. especially the bottom number. I've taken it several times today and the first time the reading was 160/109 but the others have been around 140s/ upper 90s. I work at a restaurant where I do a lot of walking and heavy lifting. would it be safe to go to work tonight or should I wait until I see my family doctor tomorrow? - Asked by K m on 14-Nov-2014 02:09:51
