Okay here is my situation. I went to the doctor if you weeks ago and my BP was 155 / 95. I've never had high BP even at the doctor's office so I found it on. I went back to the doctor for a follow-up about a week later and it read about the same. So I tested it at the local pharmacy several times over the next couple weeks and it kept showing around that same range with a high of 160 / 100. I bought a at home blood pressure monitor and started tracking it. When I wake up in the morning it's completely normal about 118 over 80. But if I do any kind of activity (just walking around) and measure it it goes up to the one 150 / 90 range very quickly. At night when I measure it it's pretty normal as well. It seems to be the afternoon when it's very high and pretty consistent in those readings. My question is is this normal, or should I be worried because my blood pressure runs high most of the day? I've had chest pain in the past but recently had a stress test that came back normal. I eat fairly healthy and 38 years old and exercise about 4 times a week. I am being treated for high cholesterol and I have a family history of high BP. Your help is appreciated in advance thank you
