I've just returned from the doctors and my BP is 145/85 and 151/72

I'm 24, 6"1 and weigh 15.8, is my blood prussure to high??
 
Not to be a smart arse, but wouldnt the doc have told you if its too high rather than asking people on a forum, most of which wont have a clue?

thats a fair point but, when i went for my medical the Dr said it was high, then this morning my Dr said it was normal, so i was hoping angry doc or someone like that could help me out

No doubt someone more qualified will give you a more detailed response, but a while back I was checking out my BP and I now keep a fairly close eye on it - the notes I have are:

Normal Blood Pressure Levels 135/80
Top - Systolic - pressure in your arteries when you heart is forcing blood through them.
Bottom - Diastolic - pressure in your arteries when hear relaxes

Systolic reading can be anywhere between 90 and 240 and the Diastolic from 60 to 140.

A reading of 140/90 is boderline hypertension HBP
A reading of 141/90 - 160/95 is moderate to high risk HBP
A reading higher than 160/95 is high risk HBP

A consistent reading of 140/90 is the level used to diagnore HBP - if it consistently at this level it will need to be treated.

BP varies in everyone by a large amount, based on age, diet, lifestyle, itness etc - you may get unexpected "one off" high readings so measurements should be repeated over a period of time.

As it's been pointed out - your GP would advise you if you have HBP and then discuss with you any lifestyle changes or whether you need medication to keep it under control.

Do they exist?

Better to identify the symtoms and deal accordingly.

An old boss of mine used to say 'we make our own stress'. Never a truer word spoken.

A few months ago I had some pains in my abdomen so I went to the doctor.

He could find nothing wrong and I'm fine now.

Could someone who doesn't know me who has no medical qualifications please let me know if I am ill?

Yes, that could be regarded as 'high'. As stated above the 'average' for your age should be about 120/80, and below 140/90.

'Average' is a very loose term when dealing with 6 billion people though. Also depends on time of day / current stress level / how good looking the doc is / family history.

Slitting your throat is a quick and effective method of reducing BP, and will have it below 140 within the hour. Stay fit, eat healthily and have it monitored is the rather more boring conventional way.

Good luck.
