Anybody dealt with it themselves? All my life I’ve had perfectly normal blood pressure readings; today, the nurse showed me 154/98 (I’m guessing by the nurse’s expression that this is too high) … I’m 23. Have a family history of hypertension, stroke, diabetes.
Does anyone know if high intensity exercise can elevate bp levels artificially (even a few days after your last session)? Freaking out here since those numbers have jumped a crap load. Is high intensity exercise even tolerated for people with high bp? The nurse seemed way too busy to answer my questions; I have an appointment with the doc but its a few weeks off, so any help appreciated. Thanks!
