I'm only 30 and was recently sent to hospital by my GP because my blood pressure was "dangerously high" (180/100). I had some other things going on as well, so I guess he was doing the right thing by erring on the side of caution.
A couple more visits to the surgery and my pressures were still too high so it was decided I should start taking Ramipril. Fortunately, a fairly comprehensive round of blood tests revealed nothing out of the ordinary.
I'm a bit disturbed at having to take this sort of medication at my age though. And as far as I know, this is a long term treatment.
I'm not saying I've lived my life like a saint, but I'm hardly Keith Richards.
Just need to vent.
... ask me anything!
