At age 30 you have hypertension with a blood pressure of that magnitude you should seek out a doctor and be investigated for the reasons it is so high Overweight and high cholesterol levels amy well be the problem. For someone in the normal weight range and age 30 your BP should be about 120/70. Medication a change in diet and exercise will prolong your life a little longer, ignore the early signs at your own peril. I suggest you contact a doctor immediately to get you started on reducing that BP

Hi i am 23years old! I have had problems with hypertension starting almost two years ago which was initally thought to have been caused by the pill, i was started on hypertensives which were stopped when my blood pressure was controlled. However since then i have continued to often get high blood pressure readings but they are inconsistent and recently have started to feel a bit light headed. My only health history is a goitre, as i have a positive antibody i m not on thyroxine yet but get my blood tested every six months. What could be causing this? shuld i be concerned???

after sex i very suddenly became light headed, spinning out and dizzy and had to sit down. also had intense lower abdominal pressure and pain/discomfort (during and after sex) and constipated feeling (small possibility of being due to slightly changed eating habits past couple of days). also had a light sweat and felt very hot, but 10 minutes later after it subsided i became very cold and clammy...? i used to get dizzy spells due to low blood pressure but this one lasted about 10 minutes and was much worse.
