I've just checked my blood pressure for the first time by myself with a borrowed self checking kit. It has come back very high (about 165/90) and now I'm really worried. I do exercise quite a lot but my diet isn't very good at all.
I've had my blood pressure checked by doctors before (As recently as a year ago) and, although I've never been told what the results were, I've always been told it was okay.
I know that this is a very high blood pressure, but will I have permanently damaged myself? I'm going to eat healthier and try and bring it down, but I'm terrified that I have ruined my body. Help!
Also, if anybody has any advice on how to lower blood pressure effectively, please let me know.
