we've now done 3 readings at the surgery, plus I've been home-testing, and unfortunately the results are right.
the doctor has banned me from running until I can see a cardiologist for a full range of tests (so far, we've only done a blood test and ECG - both clear) but says her priority will be to get me running again (she is a runner herself, fortunately!).
in the meantime, she's started me off on a low dose of an inhibitor and i'm changing my diet. the home readings are down to roughly 150/105.
hoping i can still make the VLM (which i just got a club place for), but at the moment the doc says only swimming is OK. better safe that sorry, she says, and i'm inclined to agree.
thanks again for your advice chaps... Surrey, hopefully I'll see you on the My Last Run forum again soon!
