Did the doc check anything besides your bp Joey? I've had good levels all my life but twice my bp has elevated tp more than 155/95. At first they thought it was hypertension but then found out I had a kidney infection which affected my blood pressure. The biggest indicator was I was tired all the time. A couple years ago I was showing high bp during an annual physical and put on pills. Once again I was tired all the time and mentioned to my physician that I had went through the same scenario before and it was due to a kidney infection. I was sent to a urologist who found out I had a prostate infection. I continued to take the bp medicine but kept getting light-headed (some would say I have always had that condition). I bought a bp cuff and began monitoring my bp and found out that taking the pills after the infection was gone was causing my bp to go too low (95/55). I contacted my doctor, we discussed the situation and I quit taking the pills. My bp has been in normal range the last year.
Its nothing to mess with. You did the right thing having it checked out.
