Blood pressure issues. 26yrs old.

on Aug 09, 2013 @ 06:50 am

I'm 26 female and weigh 96kg. I started to have bp issues this year mostly by stress I think. (140/100), I swim 4 times a week and trying to lose weight, we all know this is not easy. 
I have a family history on my dads side his mum died at 62 and my granddad at 69(both heart attacks). My mum has been on bp pills since 32. 

I have have had a echocardiogram came back fine, numerous ecgs. I do have a extra heart beat i think this effects me a lot (daily) also I am on bp pills now metropolol 47.5. But I'm still having pains in my chest down my left arm and jaw. Is this anxiety? That's what the doctor now says, I'm constantly concerned I'm going to have a heart attack. I am working on my lifestyle I'm really hoping whatever this is will just go away, i just want to live my life. Sigh.

Hi Bellarama,
I'm a Registered Kinesiologist, Certified Personal trainer and certified in First Aid and CPR. The warning signs of a heart attack are as follows (Heart and Stroke Foundation):
-Chest discomfort (uncomfortable chest pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain, burning or heaviness)
in other areas of the upper body (neck, jaw, shoulder, arms, back)
-Shortness of breath



The symptoms that you are experiencing requires immediate medical attention. You require clearance from your medical doctor prior to exercising, as increased activity also increases your blood pressure while exercising. Once you obtain medical clearance then you can start a supervised exercise program and diet/nutrition consultation.
I have experience working with hypertensive clients. If you have any questions please contact me. Trainer George
