Hey guys, Not sure where else to post this so, Ill hope someone can give me some insight or experience on this. So, I went to the doctor recently because of some tightness feeling in my chest area, not painful, just discomfort. I was telling my family this and since I have headaches that linger here and there, my mom said to ask for a blood pressure reading.
So I have it done and it was higher than it should be? first visit was 152/88, second visit was 165/80. Im only 21, otherwise healthy, not overweight (170-175lbs 5’8ish), I have been eating lots of food, to support strength/muscle gains, odd cheat meal here and there but mostly whole foods with good quantities… I dont smoke, drink or anything and definitely nothing pharmaceutical related or medications for anything else.
Anyways, any idea why this would be? I have another follow up in a couple days but this obviously worrying me, being in good shape just like any other young gym rat. Shoud’n’t my blood pressure/health reflect that? If i was 100lbs overweight than it wouldnt bother me as much for it too be high like that. I eat like a weightlifter/powerlifter/strength athlete should so what gives?
