Young with High Blood Pressure?
I am a young female, 22 years old, and my blood pressure is usually pretty normal (can't remember the exact numbers, but there were no concerns from my doctor when I had a check-up a few months ago). Today, it was 147/91 and I feel dizzy and just weird and not myself. (It's hard to explain lol) I have recently started up running again to prepare for a 5K and I eat healthy about 6 out of 7 days of the week. I do have family history (on my dad's) side of heart disease. My grandpa had open heart surgery a few years ago, and my dad died from a heart attack at 48 years old 5 years ago. Naturally because of this, at any sign of weirdness or pain in my chest I freak myself out, even though it is probably all in my head, which could add to the stress and a higher blood pressure. But I am just worried! Any thoughts?
