Blood pressure drops by third consecutive reading.

Q: Any time I take my blood pressure,It starts from as high as 160 over 95,decreases gradually and return to the normal level after about third reading,it goes down to as low as 124 over 82 and stay low .Any need to worry?

A: You should average your three readings assuming you are taking your pressure about 5 minutes apart. If your average is greater than 139/89, see your doctor. If your average is in the prehypertension range, greater120/80 but less than 140/90, consider yourself warned. Make all appropriate lifestyle changes.
