I have High blood pressure at the age of 21?. I eat a lot of cheeseburgers

I recently had my blood pressure taken and it first came up as 140/xx on my right arm. The person who took it figured this had to be wrong so she took it again and said it was 124/96. I m a 21 year old male 6 4 195lbs very active but i eat a lot of cheeseburgers, etc. The bottom # seems extremely high and wanted to know what ppl have to say regarding that.

If you're anxious when you have it taken, it'll go up. Next time you're at walmart in the pharmacy section take it and don't think twice about it.
