Is my BP too high ?

Today when I took it, it was 176-106 with pulse 103 and I was not really active before that. I have been under a lot of stress. My blood pressure was a little high before when it was 140-84. But is it something ot worry about now? My grandparents and Dad have blood pressure medicine, but I am just 20. I also sweat a lot after moving stuff.

Yes it way to high, it should be under 140/90 at the very minimal, so you should be checked by a doctor. It doesn't matter how old you are but you are also at risk with a history of high blood pressure. You have to be proactive with your health. Sending a web page on high blood pressure which should explain about blood pressure.
