I checked my blood pressure today and it was 133/95. Does that mean I have high blood pressure?

In brief: High blood pressure

A reading over 140/90 on 3 different occasions is considered high blood pressure.
Normal is 120/70. Pressure like yours should be monitored. Try to get enough rest and avoid salt. Try not to drink too much caffeine or alcohol. Get checked by your doctor if the pressure stays up for a real diagnosis.
