High Blood Pressure At A Young Age?
When I was in grade 3, I fell ill with a fever and headache for 3 days. Then I went to the health center and when I checked my blood pressure was 150/90. The doctor was surprised at the results of the examination. After being given a hot medicine the doctor advised me to control it two more days. Then I control and keep blood pressure steady. After that the doctor was forced to give me a blood pressure-lowering medication to take 1/2 x 1. After that I was recommended control for 2 more days, and when it arrived at the control day thank God my blood pressure was normal. After that I never check blood pressure. Until when I entered college there was an activity for people with hypertension that I couldn’t participate, but I felt I didn’t have hypertension so I just went along and in the end I felt dizzy and my blood pressure was 140/90. After that incident I was very scared, I often got dizzy in the back of the neck, when I was dizzy I always checked TD and the results were around 130 / 90-140 / 100. Sometimes also my heart suddenly flutters like that but briefly. I am currently 21 years old. What’s the solution? Thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Hypertension or high blood pressure occurs when a person's blood pressure exceeds the normal limit of 120/80 mmHg. There are several factors and causes of high blood pressure, including:
Take certain medicines
Overweight or obese
Too much salt consumption
Lack of physical activity and exercise
Besides that, it is also known as the condition of primary hypertension, where no other medical causes are found from the rise in blood pressure, and only pure increase is just an abnormality in him. In your case, by having checked yourself several times and the numbers are indeed high, it seems that now you have to believe that you do have high blood pressure. You should react to this by seeing a doctor in internal medicine, or regularly to a general practitioner to get medicine.
Meanwhile, avoid things that can trigger an increase in blood pressure by limiting consumption of salty foods, adequate rest, avoiding stress, not staying up late, maintaining ideal body weight, and avoiding cigarette smoke. So, hopefully answering your question.
