Iíve been having my blood pressure checked almost weekly recently. At my appointment today, the doc notified my numbers have been consistently high the last few months Iíve been seeing him. Iíve been told that my blood pressure was high before, so I canít say its from the test, now at 600mg week, but I canít say that the test hasnít exacerbated my preexisting condition. He gave me a diuretic, hctz 25mg, in hopes that the water Iím holding may be contributing factor. Iím only 26, but this show you the importance of getting regular check ups. I ďfeelĒ fine, but that goes to show you that you may have underlying health concerns even if you appear healthy. He says its not a big deal now, but its something to keep an eye on. You usually associate high bp with fat people who never exercise and smoke. Iím none of those.
