Only Recently I was admitted to the ER because of chest pain i was experiencing. I knew this was heart unrelated from the start as the chest pain i was experiencing had belching and it was under my left breastbone so i undoubtedly knew it was my stomach. However, i get really anxious in hospitals and when i was getting my blood pressure checked it was 170/100 with my heart going 135 beats per minute. I was there for four hours and i was that anxious throughout the whole time period, if not even more so on occasions when the monitors were not on me. Lately i am generally an anxious person and quite worried alot of the time so i can only imagine that my blood pressure must be very high because of it. I'm really scared that if i don't get this under control that i actually will do irreversible damage to my heart and i'm only 19.
Other details - i am 6ft at 72kg and i do a lot of weight lifting and running so even with my active lifestyle should my blood pressure be so high??
Thank you in advance for your replies and time
