Hi. So, the top number of your blood pressure was 160? What was the lower number? Was this a one time reading? A one time reading may be a fluke. But you should speak to your doctor about this. Obviously that is too high. If your doctor determines that this isn't just a random one off thing and they want to get an idea of your consistent blood pressure, they will ask you to check your BP several times a day and chart it. Also, if you got this reading from a cuff in say a drug store, those might be faulty. So, a lot of variables go into things. You are young. But young people CAN get high blood pressure. Any other symptoms? Dizzy? Chest pain? Seeing little floatie things? headache?
