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?
