Why BP and HR is too high?

Why is it that my BP and HR is this high at rest? I am a 20 year old girl at a healthy weight, exercise weekly, don t drink caffeine and have a normal/low salt intake, I never drink caffeine, nor alcohol, and I ve never smoked. I got my blood pressure taken twice during the day. The first time I rested for a good 5 minutes prior to and got a BP: 144/107 and HR: 120. Later in the day I got my blood pressure taken again and I got BP: 132/93 and HR:114. Should I be concerned? Why is it that my BP and HR is this high at rest?

Your blood pressure is high on both the occasions.You need to keep a record 5-6 readings,i think family members must be hypertensive,get your examined by doctor you need some basic investigations and if bp remains high you need test for kidney like ultrasound,doppler etc,which your doctor will suggest.You are young so do not jump on any medications in haste.try to maintain healthy life style,try yoga and meditation which will take care of anxiety also.all the best.
