21 and high blood pressure
So I went in for my first pap test the other day (i'm 21). Along with this they asked me a bunch of questions about medical stuff that runs in my family.
So before my test i'm all nervouse and hot and stuff. I'm all cold but have the clammy sweat just from the situation. Well the doctor takes my blood pressure and it's high.
So he filled out this sheet and wants me to get tested for a bunch of stuff! Like hematology, glucose, TSH, cholesterol. etc.... I take my blood pressure quite often and somtimes it is in the high-normal range but thats it.
Is this neccessary? I know I can do lots in my life to help it like excerise more and eat better. But i'm not over weight or anything.
