Do I need to be concerned about my blood pressure results?

I am 25years old. I have been getting dull headaches which sometimes gives me very slightly blurred vision. I also keep experiencing chest pains, where it feels like someone has stuck their fist in my chest and I have to to take a big gasp of air. It only lasts for a few minutes but it is uncomfortble.

I am getting married in Oct 2010, and have been putting the symptoms down to stress.

Today I decided toget my blood pressure checked at my local farmacia. These are my results
150/94
heart rate 110

Is this high and cause for concern? Do I need to see my GP?

Yes, that is high and you should make an appointment with your doctor.

120/80 is normal and 140/90 is considered hypertension so yes you should be concerned especially with all of your other symptoms. Please see a doc.
