I ve always had excellent blood pressure, until this week. On Tuesday, I went to a City MD clinic and my blood pressure was high. Today I went back for some things and had them take it again. It was high again -- 140/ 86. I am a 36 year old female. I don t eat meat. I walk between 20 and 40 miles a week, and more than 30 miles most weeks. There is a family history, but no one in my family has had any problems before the age of 50. Why would I have high blood pressure now? Should I make an appointment with a cardiologist?
