... woke up i drop down to normal which is 118/76 but i don't feel really well as usual, what should i do, can i stay home or should i go to work?
It is up to you. I would definitely call your Dr sometime today. You need to make an appt to go in and have him check out your blood pressure. You may need a medication tweak to get you under better control. Next time it is high like that, go to Urgent Care or ER so they can document that it has run that high and they can do some testing to see what is causing it to elevate so.
Are you on blood pressure medicine now?
Also what method are you using to take your blood pressure?
If it is one you use at home they are not always accurate.
I would definitely go off how you are feeling as if you go to work or not.
But you should Definitely need to get into see your Dr. & let him know what your readings have been.
Also something my Dr. recommends is for me to bring my Blood Pressure machine in with me that way I can compare the reading they are getting is the same as what you are getting at the same time.
Hope you feel better soon as blood pressure as you know can be dangerous.
