I've had high blood pressure ever since I was young, around 16, I went to cardiologist back then and everything was normal, my cardiologist suggested that the only reason my bp could be high is anxiety and I agree with him. I'm 21 right now, have going to the gym consistently for 4 years and I eat healthy for the most part, however, im currently on a caloric surplus right now trying to gain mass, consuming 3800 calories daily, exercising 3-5x a time a week, high-intensity weight training. Last year I had to go the ER because my bp shot up and I thought I was gonna have a stroke, I tried to not use medication but summer 2017 I started on lisinopril from which I had an allergic reaction and had trouble breathing and eating swallowing food, my physician put me on norvasc next and it was good except it made extremely sleepy so I swichted to metropolol, which im currently taking and I can feel the damage it's doing, I have serious acid reflux if I dont eat, I have ed now. I've done some research and it can damage the liver over time and maybe the kidneys and I'm only 21 I don't want to go the medication route anymore, I've added flax seeds to my diet adding more natural remedies soon, in the meantime should I get back on Norvasc or are there any other meds that won't damage my organs and are safe for long term and short term use??
My grandfather has HBP and recently got surgery. it's usually 160-180/80-90 sometimes even higher, this is without meds. I was on 5mg of lisinopril, Norvasc 2.5-5 mg and currently on 25 mg of metoprolol. yes, they definitely normalized my bp but it was still high 140-150/70-80 sometimes even higher. no, I don't want to get on more meds as they have some major side effects over time.
I currently weight around 175 pounds
