I take birth control pills and had bronchitis. Suffering from high BP and heart rate
I m a 22 year old female. I have basically no medical history . I take birth control pills and I ve had bronchitis a few times. Other than that I haven t been to a doctor. I m average weight but I do smoke. Recently I ve been checking my blood pressure because I got a reading of 185/101 a few months back. I ve noticed it s never below 140/80. I ve also noticed my heart rate is usually high too. It is usually around 130 to 140, resting. I m wondering if this is something I should be seen about right away. I do notice chest pain , when stressed about things at work or home, but it s not unbearable pain, just here and there and then it will go away, making me think it s not related. Thanks for your time.
As your blood pressure is high which is not common at this age so you should go for some investigations.
your pulse rates also high,
so consult your physician for ECG,lipid profile etc and get diagnosis .
ok and bye.
