I have recently checked my Blood pressure many times(2-3/day for 3 weeks). Every time i would check it it was high, i mean 155/90--170/95. I am fairly healthy, i have changed my lifestyle in the past year and have lost around 50 lbs. i am 6' 0" and weigh 200 lbs. i run almost everyday, i run 3 miles in around 26 minutes and if i try i can do it in around 25. which is fairly good. I don't do any weight training just cardio and pushups(100-200). my father has high blood pressure along with the rest of his family. do you think i should make an urgent dr. appt. or should i wait it out for a couple more weeks.
With a family history of high blood pressure, it may be a good idea to have your cardiovascular system evaluated, and sometimes there is no identified cause (essential hypertension). The frequency of your testing seems to rule out an abnormal variation.
