High & Low Blood Pressure board

I can tell you it can come on quickly. I was 50 and had never had high blood pressure. At my urologist appt in March (I'm a prostate cancer survivor so I get my PSA checked twice a year) my BP was very normal. Started with a new 'family' physician in July and the pressure at my first appt. there was 170/110. I didn't want to believe it (thought something weird was going on) but after monitoring it home for a while it was still high and I started meds a week or so later.

Now it's 6 months later and I'm on 40 mg of Benicar and 20 mg of Dynacirc.
