This reading is extremely high. Don't be ignorant and go to a Doctor. If you don't, you could have a stroke.

You do have a strong family history for high blood pressure, with your grandfather and father both having BP issues. I would check with your doctor before you go on your vacation (I sincerely doubt your doctor would cancel your vacation, he/she would probably think it a good idea so you can relax and hopefully lower your blood pressure). It could also partly be the cuff on the machine you're using. If you use a cuff that's too small for your arm you will get falsely high readings.

If the readings are accurate you are at increased risk for a heart attack or stroke from the high blood pressure making your heart work harder to pump against the pressure in your blood vessels. The top number is the systolic - or the pressure in your blood vessels when the heart contracts to pump blood out to your body. The bottom number is the diastolic - or the pressure in your blood vessels when the heart is "at rest" between contractions. Typically you want the top number no higher than 170s and the bottom number no higher than 80. The bottom number over 100 or the top number over 200 puts you at SEVERELY increased risk for heart attack or stroke.

Have you had any of the following recently: Headache, Seizure, Chest pain, Shortness of breath, Swelling or edema (fluid buildup in the tissues)? Definitely call your doctor as soon as you can to make sure your blood pressure is ok and perhaps to get started on medication.

You my friend are at a high risk of having a stroke or heart attack. get to a Dr ASAP. you sure aren't going to enjoy a vacation when you either end up in a hospital or dead. That is way way too high.

You would not be able to see straight enough to type if your blood pressure was that high. I think that might be a world record if it was because I have never heard of it being that high on either end, but regardless you need to go to the ER and have them check it out. Considering it runs in the family it is best to have a doctor monitor you.

You are too young to be going thru this.

261/190 might possibly be a new world record. Very, very high.Go to a doctor and soon.

I guarentee you you're BP was not 261/190 or 261/189, or you'd be dead. ESPECIALLY if you felt fine. I hate those home machines for this exact reason. You get an odd reading, and automatically freak out. The batteries could be bad, the machine could need re-calibrated, you could have had the cuff on wrong, etc. Does your pulse feel like it's bounding? Do you have a headache or vision disturbances? Do you just feel "weird"? If you are having symptoms, you can always go to a doctor's office, urgent care clinic, most ambulance bases, etc. & see if they'll check it for you.
