22yrs abnormal EKG, high bp(hypertension)
I'm concerned I've had an EKG done at the doctors office and said it was abnormal and referred me to a cardiologist....im 22 yrs old and active I've had an EKG done a month ago and it was abnormal said showed thickness ( but he didn't seemed too concerned), I've had high Bp for a couple of months. Currently 160/85 resting...I'm visiting a doc this week to find a good Bp med for me and get this down hopefully...I had an echocardiogram, stress test, blood work done as well said all was good. He didn't prescribe me meds then cause he though my Bp was stress but I'm going back to tell him its not gone down. Should I be worried? Can I exercise like this? How long do I have to get this Bp down? Ps: very concerned thanks for reading hope for a reply!

Hi there!

BP of 160/ 85 mmHg is high especially at the age of 22 years and aside anti-hypertensive medications, it would also require an evaluation for possible secondary causes and appropriate management. It would be difficult to comment on EKG findings without having a look at the actual graph. I would suggest consulting a cardiologist at your earliest convenience for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

That was very helpful thank you, I've been to a cardiologist and in currently on 50mg losartan Bp is going down some on the 4th day. He reviewed my lab and said although the EKG  showed heart thickness it was normal on the heart echo graph so my hearts healthy right now just trying to lower my Bp I'm relatively active
