High & Low Blood Pressure Message Board

High & Low Blood Pressure Board Index

Hi all, I'm a 22 year old male that has been dealing with high blood pressure recently. Earlier this week, I started feeling an intense, pressure in my chest. At first I shrugged it off as just a symptom of anxiety or something, but eventually I saw a Cardiologist. My blood pressure was taken and my top number was over 200. I was also pretty calm during this reading.

My BP was constantly over 150 for the next couple of days, but this morning I checked and it had dropped below 140. However, I went to the doctor and I got nervous and my BP spiked even higher then it was two days previously. The doctor gave me some medicine to try and come back on Friday for another BP reading.

Here are the facts: I had done a little bit of binge drinking of alcohol over the weekend, and the symptoms started to show right after. I have been taking various workout supplements such as: Natural Testosterone Booster, Creatine, Super NOs Pump, Fish Oil, Multivitamins, and Whey Protein. I take the Test Booster and Creatine everyday. I also have dealt with random anxiety attacks as well as chronic anxiety, but this has only been a recent development of the last couple of months.

I guess my question is, what in the world could be causing such high blood pressure for such a young age? I am pretty healthy and usually lift weights religously. I don't eat much salt and rarely ever drink sodas.
Also, I forgot to mention that I used to have Superventricular Tachycardia. I experience episodes of my heart racing irregular up to over 200 BPM for anywhere from 5 minutes to 45 minutes. This would happen when I was working out or playing a sport or something and was usually triggered when I took a deep breath.

I had an Ablation procedure done about 3 months ago to fix it, and I haven't had any racing episodes since. I called my original doctor, and he doesn't seem to think my current symptoms could have anything to do with this procedure or previous condition.
