27 year old male, have high blood pressure. Should I be Worry ?

Hi, I am a 27 year old male, reasonable fit. I had a little trouble with panic attacks a few years ago which i have now got over. However I am a little worried about my blood pressure . When I am at complete rest it is around 137/80 but when I have got in after a days work which can be quite fast paced an streesful it reads 170/100. Once i have spent some time relaxing it returns to around 140/80. should i be worried? am i causing long term dmage?. thankyou in advance

Before being addicted to PILLS try diet change. Start taking following regularly as and when possible: Beet, Carrot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger. Drink alkaline water 3l/day. In my attempt to control blood sugar (without PILLS) the related changes on eating habbit also brought down my BP from 160 to 120. It never used to be below 140. No PILLS.

Drop Processed/Junk/Tetrapack crap/Engineered Oils/Coke/Pepsi/Dominos/McDonald/KFC/Tea/Coffee. Switch to "Organic Green Tea". Do yoga. I am not a doctor but someone who has seen how diet really works wonders and now my sugar and BP are both normal.

Hi, thanks for the replies. I have seen my docter several times. had bloods done, ecg etc. All came back ok. She didnt seem too worried about the 140/80 reading and said this is the upper limit of normal but would need to keep an eye on it and maybe make some lifestyle changes which i am planning. I would like to know if my reading of 170/100 under stress is a normal reaction (as my docter suggested)? thankyou again

most nights i seem to have a problem sleeping as my heart seems to be beating too fast and once ive set my mind on it it doesn t stop. to begin with i had panic attacks as i smoke marajuana and im quite a stressed individual but now my chest hurts regularly, and when i try fall asleep at night i ll be woken up all of a sudden struggling for breath. even after a walk or just going out with some friends my heart starts to pound, i m really really worried, if i know i can t die because of it i d be so much more relaxed but i m sure it s something more than a panic attack.

doctor1 MD

my heart is pounding really hard. it s been doing it for about two days now. i have had panic attacks, it doesn t feel like a panic attack. it s kind of scaring me. should i go to the hospital or is it more than likely just a new kind of panic attack that i haven t experienced yet?

I have been having a tightness in my chest and a feeling of heaviness for about 2 hours now. It also feels a little tight in my throat and I feel as though I cannot get as much air in my lunges as usual. This has happened to me before and last time was a few weeks ago when I was on holiday... could this be something to do with the heat? Just before the feeling came on I was eating chocolates - I m wonder if this has affected my sugar levels or blood pressure perhaps. I am trying not to panic as I am wondering is this a panic attack without me realising its one?? Thank you for reading, hope you can help . Sara
