The cumulative effects can be dangerous, of course, it takes a long time for anything to happen. I'm guessing you're fairly young yet, so probably no long term damage has occurred. Nevertheless, you should get that checked out soon, as that is a little high.

if its up above the norm, then it means your heart is working extra hard, this may take its toll after many years. You can get these pills to lower your blood pressure, as a preventive maintenance, to make sure you don't get some heart attack down the line. Focusing on your diet will help also. Drugs can also make your blood pressure higher, especially the white stuff.

A one-time test doesn't really tell you much about what your normal blood pressure is. Try testing yourself several times a day for a few days and average it out. If it turns out that you have chronically high blood pressure, perhaps you need to change a few habits or even take some medication, because in the long run it's a very serious issue. It means your heart is working too hard. Shroomin' causes a definite spike in blood pressure usually for the duration of the trip, so maybe you should cut some of that shit out.

What were you doing before taking the test?

It doesn't tell me much if you only have on test done...you need a few spaced over several days to find what your usual is.

The fact that your diastolic was low leads me to believe the high pressure was caused by doing something before the test.

not really.... i was walking through wallmart buying shampoo and socks with this girl i know... perhaps it was her presence....

i do eat alot of salt in my food, more than i probably should. im willing to bet that has a big effect on it....

also, i had a hot chocolate earlier, and barely ever drink caffieene...

thing is, i can feel my heart working too hard most of the time.... it kinda creeps me out...

Sometimes lowering your bp to a healthy level is simply a matter of stepping up your exercise regimen, improving your diet, and cutting down on the salts you mentioned, coffee and definitely cigarettes.  Preventative maintenance  :thumbup:

Get a few tests taken over several days, including one taken after sitting down relaxing for 20-30 mins.

When I was in the hospital they took my BP every day, though the time of day changed. Sometimes I'd be like 115/70 and other times I'd be more like 145/80. I though that seemed really high too but the nurse said ANY exercise will make it go up.

Too much salt will do it. Cut back on it.
