    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    While it's not monstrously high, it is elevated. Part of what you have to keep in mind is where you were at the time. I am almost that high when I am at a new doctor that I am worried about. But at home I usually run at about 100/60. So I don't worry about the occasional high as I know it's normal most of the time. If that is the only reading you have, then you should think about getting a meter and tracking it. Then you will have good info to provide to your doctor.
