Essential High Blood Pressure Age 24- Possible or Unlikely?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hello,

I am age 24 and was diagnosed with high blood pressure around 2 years ago (but likely had it before).

A cause has so far not been found despite a referral to an endocrinologist.

I have been more or less written off with essential hypertension and medication is my only apparent option (as I am not overweight, healthy, exercise).

Is my diagnosis of essential hypertension actually possible for someone by age or am I just being fobbed off?
