hello, first of all i am 18 years old, i weight 115 im very skinny, i am about 5'6.
basically i was diagnosed just earlier today my blood pressure was 140/100 (no drugs, caffeine etc, non smoker nothing)
i was just wondering is this abnormal for a boy this young, last year ive had holter monitor tests, ekg, ultra scan for my heart and they were all normal including BP. the only reason i saw a cardiologist last year was because i complained about my high heart rate normally 90-100+ at rest. but they said i was fine nothing to worry about and just to see a psychiatrist because it might be anxiety and my psychologist prescribed me anti anxiety med which i stopped using cause i didnt like it, and didnt want to be addicted.
so a year later, now something is really wrong, i went to see the doc cause i have had chest pain during exercise, still high heart rate and my blood pressure they checked was 140/100ish and no the doc prescribed me atenolol.
my main questions are,
1) is this normal for a young man (obviously not i dont know why i asked),
2)should other tests be done that anyone suggests
3) how long for the medicine (atenolol) to start working to its peak
4) is it safe to exercise
5) what can i do to be healthier. if I eat any healthier than I do now id probably die because im 110-115 pounds any skinnier its just wrong.
