For my birthday I went on an eating spree. I had lots of fast food and cake. My blood pressure was 165/87. Is this too high?

    Yes, FAR too high. While some say that 120/80 is the normal; it isnt always true.

    Older people don't have the same elasticity in their arteries as younger people do.

    If your blood pressure continues to be high,  you'd be wise to consult your doctor.

    Monitor your bp at home!!
