Every time I buy BC pills, they take my BP because the clinic doesn't allow you to buy pills if your BP is over a certain number. Yesterday the clinic almost didn't sell me pills because my BP was sky high.
Before last fall, my BP was consistently in the 100-110 range for systolic for at least the past 10 years.
Here are my last few readings:
1/16/09: 138/80 (lowest of 3 readings that the nurse took. The highest was 141/90)
It is really disturbing that my BP would sky rocket so suddenly, considering that I seriously reduced my sodium intake about a year ago and we all know I certainly don't have problems getting enough exercise....
Both my parents have high BP, it would just SUCK to have to go on BP meds at age 30 due to bad genes.
Going to call my doctor on Monday...
