(1) Has it changed suddenly to these levels?
(2) How much do you weigh? - and how tall are you?
(3) Nobody's B/Ps "go up to...anything" and stay there... they vary all day, in a cyclic fashion.. Can you take proper, repeated measurements, at the SAME time (11.30 a.m. -before you've eaten lunch) on the SAME arm, at the same place, using the same monitor, while sitting in the SAME position, and also then take similar readings -say for instance, at bedtime, when you're ready for sleep? That's the first step to start to getting readings that mean anything. But you should record your pulse-rate at the same time, because without that, the pressure readings alone are almost meaningless.(Despite all the cr * p you'll read here on Answers.)

I have had high blood pressure since I was 14, and now im 18. I am not fat, I eat healthy for the most part. I do not smoke or drink at all or take any illegal drugs. I am on Lisinipril 20mg and hydrochlorithyzide 25mg. My doctors are baffled because they have checked my heart, my kydneys, and continious blood work. My blood pressure on a calm day is 150/95 they keep doubling my medicine, but i do not lose any points what could possibly be the secondary cause, and if it is hereditary why can the levels not go down. My second problem is I am suspected to have internal bleeding. Once a week I get these crippling feelings in my lower abdomin. I have to go to the bathroom immediately and the stool is almost pure liquid filled with dark red blood. After I go to the bathroom my pain is gone.
