Hi.  So, the top number of your blood pressure was 160?  What was the lower number?  Was this a one time reading?  A one time reading may be a fluke.  But you should speak to your doctor about this.  Obviously that is too high.  If your doctor determines that this isn't just a random one off thing and they want to get an idea of your consistent blood pressure, they will ask you to check your BP several times a day and chart it.  Also, if you got this reading from a cuff in say a drug store, those might be faulty.  So, a lot of variables go into things.  You are young. But young people CAN get high blood pressure. Any other symptoms?  Dizzy? Chest pain?  Seeing little floatie things?  headache?
