In Reply to: high blood pressure posted by MIKE HOBAN on March 22, 2000 at 18:48:34:

: I need some help here. I am a 24 year old male.I just had my blood pressure checked at a healthfair at work.
: My reading was 160/120. I am going to see my doctor in a few days. How high is this? Am I in line for a stroke or something worse? I have a high stress job. Does that have anything to do with it?

Mike,

I am a 44 years old and I have not long been placed on Prinivil blood pressure medication. My highest reading was 150/100 and I am recovering from a stroke although I dont know what it was before the stroke. I believe that a normal reading should be around 120/80.

You are right, both high blood pressure and stress will put you at greater risk of a stroke. If your blood pressure gets too high you may get TIA's or mini strokes.
