I am posting in this section because many of you may be more concerned than the teen section.
I have been having some high blood pressure lately, 140/90 seems to be about the settling point but its been 150/100 at times.
Ive talked to a few doctors and even tried a couple medications however they made me feel like crap and i stopped taking them. Blood work is golden, everything is normal in range.
I am 22 and its starting to worry me. I have always been in good shape, but I can't seem to get it down even with lifestyle changes. I was 6'2, 235 lbs and lean. I never took any anabolics or anything but I knew that body weight could be a contributing factor. I slimmed down to 220ish lbs, i don't want to lose any more, it didnt seem to change it.
I don't get affected much by stress and whatnot so I don't think thats the issue.
Ive been trying to do more cardio, no effect. I tried eating cleaner for a few months (even tho diet was pretty good to begin with) and the low sodium diet, no luck.
What else can I try? Id like to stay away from medications too.
