    I am 29 years old. For a week I've been having sudden rises in my blood pressure. The first day I had a very strong headxahe, nausea and felt dizzy, like I was going to faint. My face was very hot, my eyes samrted and I felt a pressure inside my head, almost as if my eyes were going to burst. Later I felt fine. I went to a doctor for another reason that same day, he told I had my preassure a little bit high: 140-90 and told to monitor it he next days just in case it happened again. I've been feeling the same since then, sometimes fine, and my preassure is fine, then suddenly I start to feel the same symptoms and I take my preassure and it is a little bit high, from 140-90, to 165-95. Sometimes I feel so dizzy and the preassure in my head is so strong, that I can't get up from my chair. My doctor told me I don't have a High blood preassure problem beacause the preassure is not constantly high, but then, what is it??? Please help me, this is really affecting my job...

    Being symptomatic is actually a good sign. As your doctor pointed out, high BP means consistently elevated. When that happens gradually over time, people do not feel it although their heart is working harder against the increased pressure--"the silent killer." Your body is not used to the elevated BP and so you are symptomatic. Get a cuff and monitor your symptoms against your pressure. Your levels are high enough, especially considering your age, that your doc should be concerned (or you may need a new doc).
