25-year-old female with moderately high blood pressure and rather high pulse rate

25-year-old female with moderately high blood pressure and rather high pulse rate - should I be concerned? I have a lower-management job in a small retail corp, and the season isn t quite over yet. I smoke one cigarette a day, half on the way to work and half on the way back from break. I had a problem with arrhythmia and low blood pressure as a teen, so I became paranoid and began checking my BP using a home monitor I ve checked against my mother s (a nurse) - both parents have high BP. It s the distance between the numbers that is actually concerning me, but I don t know if that s what I should be worried about. My sleep tends to be short and erratic. And my diet is generally fast food. I m just trying to figure out whether it s my habits or something else.

I am a 48 year old female and stopped in my local pharmacy to check my BP and pulse........my doctor had advised I should do this a few times per month after giving a high reading at the doctor s office a 2 months ago. I have always had thru my life a reading of 110 over 70 until a few months ago. Yesterday it was 134/50 with a pulse rate of 103. I have not felt right for a few months now. A Nuclear Stress test and ches x-ray were good but I still feel there is something wrong. What should I do and what could be going on. I m am afraid of stroke or heart attack at this point. Thank you for your time.

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
