HIGH blood pressure

  If I do almost anything my blood pressure will shoot up.  If I bend over to put on my shoes or if I have to try and pull on socks over my swollen feet my blood pressure goes up.
  I took a heavy item out to the trash tonight.  For the first time, I took my blood pressure when I got back to the apartment.  I knew it was high.  I can tell.  But this time I took my BP.  It was 222 over 98.  The heart rate of 89.

I took my BP about 30 minutes later and it was 172/83.

Normal BP for me runs;  162/76, 147/68, 163/79, 145/66 and that is about normal for.
