Blood pressure of 195/100, I need help

blood pressure of 195/100 and im only 22! I need help, can anyone tell me? ok well heres the deal, my blood pressure is all over the place. The doctors think I have white coat syndrome, and the problem is I cannot get over taking my blood pressure. When the doc tells me I gotta take a blood pressure test my hearts starts beating really fast and hard, sometimes I start sweating and my eyes get blood shot red plus my face gets red. The doc first told me I had high blood pressure when I was in 10th grade, my reading was like 145/85 and ever since then I have had a great fear of measuring my blood pressure. Im really confused, and no I cannot take the home test....its not the doc that scares me...its taking my blood pressure that scares me. I want it to be low so bad that I get really nervous, anyways it ranges from 120-70 to 215-110....recently it was 195/100. I get more nervous when I take my blood pressure then I do when I make a public speech. I think my real blood pressure is around 140/85 which is still high. I eat very badly, like 6 double cheeseburgers an I eat very badly, like 5 double chesseburgers from mcdonalds and 2 large pizzas from dominos. I dont eat fruits or veggies ever, maybe one fruit or veggie per year on average? So can extreme stress make ones BP raise say 30 points or more....isnt there night time cuffs I can wear when I sleep to see what my real blood pressure is? Thanks im thin and tall, I look very healthy. Thanks for the great answers, I need the 24 hour cuff for sure. Im going to change my diet and all....I would rather avoid the drugs because well I think they can do alot of harm. I think I can lower it naturally.

Im 43 years old, 5 10 and 212lbs. I went for a root canal a few weeks ago and after taking my BP several times (180/120), was told that I need to get my BP under control before they could do anything. I don t currently have insurance but took it seriously and have been seeing a doctor. I m currently on 100MG of Atenolol in the evening and a diuretic in the morning and bought a good upper arm BP machine. I m checking the BP 3 times in the morning, once at lunch and 3 times in the evening and recording the readings. It just doesn t seem to be coming down quick enough. The first week was 50mg of Atenolol (no diuretic) and the second week was upped to 100mg and the diuretic added. It s been a full week and I m not scheduled to go back for another week. I m getting readings in the morning around 150/110, and lunch around 170 /110 and then an hour after the medication in the evening it gets down to around 129/96, but pops right back up in the morning. When I first visited the doctor I was at 220/120, and prior to that I had a reading of 195/154 at a pharmacy machine. Should I give it another week or try to see the doctor sooner?

I have low blood pressure, sometimes. I bought Ultra CoQ10 by QUOL ( saying the #1 cardiologit recommendation). I got a pace maker last year, as I was passing out. Do I need to be concerned about taking 100 mg. a day. I like the idea that it helps the immune system, as my is weak. Is this message free or do I have to pay to get an answer?

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

I am a 25 yr old female that has recently lost 70 pounds and suffers from pcos. I am off all the bp medicines I was taking, and have been on a gluten free diet since 4/21/11 b/c I am allergic to wheat. I have been getting dizzy, lightheaded, and have a fast heart rate and low blood pressure when standing or sitting up. my heart rate is usually in the 60 -70 range when resting, and it's been in the high 90 - 100 range while resting. The dizziness started Sunday 6/19/11 all of a sudden, and I have kept track of my BP and symptoms since Sunday. I get this intense pressure in my head, and the get dizzy, and my heart will race when I start to feel yucky, I have trouble breathing, when my heart rate is up this high for no apparent reason. My BP will be 93/62 and HR 101 standing, or it can be 114/65 and HR 80 a few minutes later.. but if I go from lying down to sitting, it will be elevated, then it elevates when I stand, if I lay down everything is fine.. the pressure in my head goes away, the dizzyness goes away, and the HR goes back to normal... I have a shunt in place for hydrocephalus, my first shunt was placed at the age of two weeks, and first revision was done 4/5/2010. I want to know what is causing this fluctuation in BP and the dizziness, and fast HR...thanks
