High BP At A Young Age, What Could Be The Cause by DICO111(m): 10:55am On Aug 24, 2022
Greetings to you all.

Since birth till date (I'm 31) I have never fallen sick to a point were a test is recommended, so I have never had a medical test all my life.

Sometimes when I feel feverish or down in anyway I usually buy malaria and typhoid medicines and that usually work for me.

But some time in 2018, (I was 27 then) I was informed by my uncle's wife that she was going to do a free medical outreach in our village as her own way of helping people (she's a nurse in U.S) and she told me she would like me to be present to help organize and sort out things to make the work easy for medical professionals she invited to do their work.

Majority of the people that turned up were oldies so we had loads of work to do bring in chairs for the overwhelming turn up.... people's blood pressure and blood sugar were check and they also had eyes test and corrective lenses were given.

Now, after the whole exhausting exercise, my auntie as a fondly call her asked all of us that worked to also check our BP and blood sugar, which took turns and did as instructed.

My blood sugar was normal according to the nurse but my BP was something else, 105/156... she immediately called my auntie's attention to it and she opted to check me herself using another equipment, she did and it came as 110/160..... she told me it's really very high and considering my age shouldn't be.

Prior to that event I have never felt anything awkward or unusual, I play football and do almost all exercises a young guy will want to do... it's also pertinent to note that I do not smoke and even though i drink beer i dont exceed 2 bottle because i have "light brain" like they will always say.

She ("my auntie"wink asked the senior doctor present to exchange contacts with me so that at intervals of 1 or 2 weeks I will always go check my BP and see if it will reverse to normal.... I went to his private clinic twice and the results was always high so he, on the second occasion gave me a card of 10mg drugs...

I took the whole card as direct and came back to the clinic this time the result was 100/138, he now asked me to always check it at any pharmacy store near me and always have the aforementioned medicines available.
The doc. asked me not to be taking it daily anymore but only when it's high (above 100/140), I have kept to this routine ever since...

Now my problem here is, in recent time I find myself feeling more week and dizzy and I dont even know how to describe the feelings cry cry
I become very worn out after 45 minutes football unlike me, I barely play now.

My auntie travelled back and seems to forgotten everything she promised, I call and no response and I hate pestering people.
I want a solution to this BP thing, I feel bad about it all the time and always ashamed to even mention it sad
I feel I'm gradually going downhill health wise....I need help and I need it urgently please...... I can't take anything more than this cry

Ok,

I think you need to review your drugs with a cardiologist.

Some of these drugs have adverse effects.

i actually expected the doctor to give you a beta blocker but that's his choice anyway

I don’t know anyone who plays football every day. Is that your situation? Let me answer the obvious; no. Run daily from today onward.

i drink beer i dont exceed 2 bottle
Get rid of this for four months.

Since you say your health is diminishing, visit the doctor and take whatever medication he’ll prescribe. When better, start exercising every day. Do not stop when things normalize because your body is like a vehicle which needs fuel in the form of exercise to work properly. I suspect your food aids in the condition getting worse. Tell the doctor to recommend to you a dietician who’ll get your meal plans in order.

Did you know??



Men, from age 18 to around 21 years your penis is not likely to grow much longer or thicker.

Know this and stop spending money on penis enlargement products. You are being scammed!

Beta blocker is the only good option.

The cause of high blood pressure in young adults isn't always known, but addressing obesity, sedentary lifestyle and excessive alcohol or salt can be the first steps toward bringing your blood pressure down.

High blood pressure in younger children is often related to other health conditions, such as heart defects, kidney disease, genetic conditions or hormonal disorders.
Older children, especially those who are overweight are more likely to have primary hypertension.

Since the doctor has placed you on continuous use of beta blockers(metropolol/propranolol), long term side effects is what you are seeing like; the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can subsequently graduate to damaging the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure..etc

so It's best at this your own stage to go see a specialist (cardiologist). Continuous self medication to manage the symptoms my not be the best approach, but treatment of the underlining symptom. For now stop talking beer, step down to just soft drinks only, for the sake of your liver aswell.

Someone said I was giving a misguided advise as regarding taking of soft drinks instead of beer for an hypertensive patient. You could all check this out...


ANSWER: It's unlikely that the diet soda you drink is causing your high blood pressure. A number of studies have examined this topic, and there is no evidence to suggest a link between regularly drinking diet soda and an increase in blood pressure.Jun 18, 2016

cool

BP is all about management.

Quit adding too much salt in your food and exercise lightly.


Above all leave Nigeria as fast as you can. The bad news endemic to the country is a real cause of high blood pressure

See The Top Five Toyota Cars that Nigerians will Always Love.

Nigerians will always love these Toyota's and it is because these vehicles have stood by them during their toughest times. These are some of the most reliable vehicles on the Nigerian roads and they combine this reliability with affordability.
