How do i lower my blood pressure ... I am sixteen years old...? Unfortunatley i have high blood pressure and am really worried, the doctors told me that it is a problem and needs to get fixed, I am 5 6 and weigh 178 pounds... I dont know what to do!!! And when i went there i was really nervous because i was going in for something else, so could that have caused my high blood pressure?
