My blood pressure just read 184/100, which is the highest it's ever been. Should I go to the emergency room since my regular doctor's office is closed?
A blood pressure of 184/100 is cause for concern and you should seek treatment ASAP. Since you posted your question two days ago, I hope you have since see a physician to determine the best treatment for you.
Here is a great source of information: The Basics of High Blood Pressure.
The Joint National Committee defines four blood pressure categories, and your blood pressure falls into this category:
Very High Range - Stage 2 HypertensionSystolic (top) blood pressure 160 mm Hg or highDiastolic (bottom) blood pressure 100 mm Hg or higher If in this range you have hypertension (high blood pressure).
