Is 180/100 a bad reading? If not what is?

Answer by u_no_ur_jeluz
yes 180 over 100 is bad,but I have seen worse. 120/80 used to be normal,but now they consider that a pre-cursor to high blood pressure and want it usually to be at that # or below. You cant say at exactly what blood pressure reading you will have a stroke, because it varies from person to person. If you do have high blood pressure and aren’t on meds,then watch for symptoms and go to doctor ASAP. 180/100 is too high. Even if it doesn’t cause you to have a stroke ,it can be very stressful on your body,cause all kinds of aches and pains including BAD headaches,and it is hard on your heart.
