Yes thats way too high for you...could be genetics...if your are fit and exercise...may need to take meds..which dilate/make your arteries bigger so there is not so much resistence.other meds work on a chemical that your kidney puts out which can raise Blood pressue...the med blocks this chemical. dont ignore it..its called the silent killer
