I’m a 49 yr old woman. Recently (Past few weeks) my blood pressure has been quite high. It stays at or around 130/90. A few days earlier it even went up to 145/95. I’m asymptomatic except my ears get hot, sort of feels like hot air coming out of my ears. That’s when I know my pressure might be high. My late father had high blood pressure, my older sister takes blood pressure medications and another one of my older sisters have also recently started taking medications for blood pressure. I’m not too keen on taking blood pressure medications as I’ve heard that if you start taking blood pressure medications you can’t stop taking them. Many people have said that 130/90 or 130/80 is normal for my age but I’m afraid this might damage me internally (heart, brain etc). I’ve done several Echocardiograms and all of them have reported to be normal. Another risk factor is that I’m obese. But I’ve been controlling my diet and walking for an hour daily. Serum cholesterol=226 mg/dL, Triglycerides= 215 mg/dL, Serum HDL Cholesterol= 28 mg/dL, Serum LDL Cholesterol= 155 mg/dL, Serum Total Bilirubin= 0.5 mg/dL.
