There are defined risk factors for heart disease and they are seperated by "modifiable" and "non-modifiable"
The "modifiable" risk factors for heart disease are:
--to lose weight
--to change your diet (salt)
--to reduce stress
--to stop the sedentary life-style
--to stop smoking
The "non-modifiable" risk factors are:
You are probably not connecting high blood pressure with heart disease [and the possibility of a heart attack].
The "modifiable" risk factors are things that you can change.
The "non-modifiable" risk factors are things that you cannot change.
I need more information from you to answer more completely.
What is your blood pressure?
How old are you?
What race are you?
Are you over-weight?
How long has your blood pressure been elevated?
Are you on any blood pressure medication or under the care of a doctor?
In some cases, weight loss, diet changes, and exercise can bring your pressure to a normal range.
I hope this information was beneficial. Please report more information.

I have high blood pressure, a heart murmur, an enlarged left ventricle, sleep apnea, and panic attacks. I am also anemic. I have daily nausea and migraines. I am only prescribed hct and iron. The high blood pressure is not controlled. For almost a year now, I have been having muscle spasms and they are becoming worse. It is becoming difficult to get through the work day. The air conditioning is out at work, so the heat seems to be aggravating my symptoms. I have been having female problems. My gynecologist has performed several procedures, including an abdominal myomectomy to remove fibroid tumors and a leep to remove abnormal cells. However, the fibroids and the abnormal cells have returned. He wants to repeat the surgeries. My hormones are completely out of whack. My blemish free skin is now cover with acne and I have extremely heavy menstrual cycles that last 12-13 days every 28 day cycle. Can all this be a sign of something worse, as these symptoms have been escalating over the past five years?

I am nervous with that reading. I had to go down two flights of stairs to get to the test, could that have had an affect on the reading??
