    Extremely high bp

    I am a 38-year-old female diagnosed with Stage 4 hypertension in 22010.I am a former professional bodybuilder now running my own gym. My pressure without meds runs around 270/210. Last week l noticed that the veins in my forearms became much more distended than usual. I am wondering if an increase in my blood pressure would cause my veins to protrude excessively. I currently take Lexxel, Vasotec, Metoprolol and Lisinopril but my pressure is still high at 152/108.

    Extremely high blood pressure

    My husband recently had surgery. When he came out they were trying to lower his blood pressure. They had already given him 9 different meds intravenously, the 8th one made it go up more. Since then we have been monitoring it at home. It stays between 140/190 over 113/134. He is concerned that since they couldn't get it down at the hospital that they would have to experiment to find what would work and what if one of those made him stroke out. At what level does it make you have a stroke.
