Why my BP is high ?

I am 19 years old, I exercise, am of average weight, do not smoke, do not drink alcohol or coffee, and I do not consume salt in excess. My blood pressure is higher than it should be, and is in the hypertension range. Why could this be ?

last night my friend brought in her blood presure machine to work to check my BP i told her i dont have high BP because im a vegertarian and dont eat animal fat, so she took it and i nearly died, it was 180/91 as the night went on it got up to 190/ 125 started to panic maybe thats why, so as i work in the hospital i decided to get it checked out, it was 180/103 cant work out why its high, is this really bad should i go to my GP forgot to mention most of my uncles and aunts on my mums side have died of heart attacks, my mum died when she was only 47 am 44. I really thought i was ok cutting out animal fat, maybe thats not enough. forgot to mention i have been getting nigley pains in my chest for a few weeks now, and my lips keep going numb, begining to think im a heart attack waiting to happen, think i might go to out of hours doctor.

Bottom number of blood pressure is always around 85. Why is top number always going to around 142-144? Sometimes it goes down to around 134. I don t like when it climbs to 140. Taking extra magnesium & seaweed capsules to bring it down. Why is only top number out of range?

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
