this morning wen i did a b/s test i pricked my finger and it shot out like it would if you had severed a arterty, (like a fountain) why did it do that could it be that my blood pressure was high it was 134 over 126 and pulse 80, dont know weather you would class that high or not thanks

Your diastolic pressure of 126 is quite high actually. That is sort of like the pressure that is still maintained when you heart is a rest. Systolic ( the top number) can cause damage for sure....but a high diastolic pressure can really havoc on your body. I hope you are monitoring your blood pressure to see if maybe that was just a fluke or if your diastolic pressure is that high all the time. If it is...I would certainly have it checked by your doctor.

Cheers

My average blood pressure has been approximately 125/60 for many years. I take a blood pressure med. My doctor is pleased. I am 70 and I have been a diabetic for 64 years so I suppose my BR is not so bad when we take that into account.
