Mine is the same and my doctor was very worried. I am taking Norvasc 5mg 1/2 tab one to two times a day though I think I need more. I feel fine but I've had my Grandpa die in his 40's after 3 heart attacks and my Grandma and her Great Grandma have strokes but in their 70's or 80's.

When I mean the same it was 151 over 101 which is stage 2 (the worst). You have take meds and exercise. I just found out. I am 5'3 female, weigh 153. Not overweight but bigger bones and other 2 other things lol! Anyway...get to a doc soon and use those machines at the drug stores and such and do them 3 times if high to get an accurate reading. Plus stress (who doesn't have it) will make it worse that is why exercise is just one of the reasons it helps.
