Whenever I go to the doctor, my blood pressure ranging between 130/85 and then sometimes 117/80. The last couple of weeks it has been between 128/85 and 145/93. The doctors do not seemed to notice, tell me to keep diary and bring it in at the next visit (six mths away). One doctor said she will just watch it, My primary physician did not even say anything, What should I do?
