Troubling

I have a doctor appointment tommorrow morning... the last few times I have had my blood pressure taken, the tech has mentioned that it was running somewhat high. I started monitoring it myself and saw that I am indeed running a bp that is too high. I emailed the blood bank and asked if they could check their records (as I've been donating every 12 weeks... or whatever the cycle they put you on when you donate as soon as you are able) and these are what my bp readings have been:

date.........bp
11/8.......114/76
1/31.......128/70
4/24.......130/100 (I was a little wigged out about donating this day)
4/30.......132/88
5/2........144/99
5/5........154/99 (though I had just walked about 1/2 mile, so I waited a few minutes, took it again and it was 142/92)
5/6........143/89 (waited a few minutes, took it again and it was 138/91)

so now I'm freaking out.
