Ok, so I train gymnastics and aikido (marshal art) have trained athletics, basketball, I play football (English one), volleyball, I train for flexibility and strength every day...........so I'm all around, a pretty active and I'd dare to say fit. I have no overweight issues (75 kg and around 183 cm tall) but recently, in the past month, I have noticed that I've got a bit of a problem.
After every stretching/exercising at home, I notice that if I sit, or rest after that my heart starts pounding a bit stronger and I get pretty aware of it. I've even had some pain in my chest (though I'm not sure if it's in the chest, or are those just surface pains)
I've measured my blood pressure and it's slightly elevated (when resting or not) around 140/90 sometimes higher, sometimes lower, but that's usually around that. My heart rate is normal I think, after exercises it usually goes over 80, but never too high.
My grandpa has a low blood pressure, but my grandmother has died out of cardiac arest and she had had blood pressure problems. From my mum's side: She has a high blood pressure and she takes pills for it, my grandma had a pace maker put last year and she has a high blood pressure for which she takes medications.
I'm a 0 blood type (if that has something to do with anything)
I'm 18 years old.
Ohh and one more thing, I have noticed the exact same pain once I took a punch in my back, guy "tackled" my with his shoulder on basketball game.
I'm really worried about my health and my future in sports.
I'm really desperate, but I don't want to go to hospital, because my parents would find out about it, since they work in hospital, and I don't want them to worry about me, they already have enough on their mind.
Thanks in advance. :)
