My BP the Last 2 days has been 149/94. I'm on Linsopril to lower it and it's usually around 128/80. I just saw my Dr. on Thursday and it was normal. Should I be concerned. I've worked 15 hours a day on Friday and Saturday and i'm not sure if it's just lack of rest or if I need to go in?

149/94 is high, but it is still the first stage of hypertension. (140/90 - 159/99)

BP fluctuate wildly. Stress and anxiety can cause an increase. Even something as simple as being cut off in traffic.

As can pain, minor illness, and lack of sleep.

Watch it for a week. If it is still high call the doctors nurse and see if they want to see you again.
