high blood pressure in young adults

Anyone know if high blood pressure in say a 19 year old can cause fingers to be so swollen a ring wont fit on a finger?

Re: high blood pressure in young adults

Swollen fingers is usually a sign of fluid retention, which can for some raise blood pressure. Is this happening regularly, throughout the day? Or is it mostly in the morning or at night - those times can have some minor swelling in fingers that's not abnormal.

If you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, inform your doctor about the swelling.
