Isn't it like a 66-ish average pulse at rest?

EDIT: Oops, blood PRESSURE? No clue, carry on.

Wait, are you measuring pulse or blood pressure? If that's your blood pressure it's not really that bad.. If it's your pulse that is a bit on the higher side, average is about 90.

If it continues, and it's a concern to you, you should probably go see a doctor.

Smoking does increase blood pressure, by the way.

Yes, it does increase blood pressure. For sure.
Yeah, if it's really concerning you, stop and probably go see a doctor. Just incase it's not a pre-existing condition that may have been triggered.

so i'm kinda bringing back an old thread but i didn't really wanna start a new one and get the whole searchbar spiel...

anyways, my family has a bit of a history with heart problems and high blood pressure (among other things...but that's for another time) and recently i had to go to the doctor for a problem that's not worth mentioning. while i was there, i had my blood pressure tested. the nurse didn't care but my mom got worried. i think it read something similar to 140/72 or so. is this normal for a 17-year-old?


tl;dr
my blood pressure is 140/72. good or bad for 17-year-old?
...why?

I dunno, but unless your mother is a nurse or a doctor, I would trust the nurse.

Two things, firstly, your blood pressure is two numbers, the average is 120 over 80.
Secondly, if that's your heart rate and not your blood pressure then yes that's way to ****ing high and you need to see a doctor IMMEDIATELY.

EDIT: ****, just realised this is revived, no 140 over 72 isn't that bad, it you can probably improve it woth cardio vascular exercise. If you already exercise regularly I recommend an extended period of running atleast 5 days a week.

It helps to read a thread all the way through before posting. Especially ones with less than 20 posts.

The 140 is normal, as your heart rate and blood pressure are a bit higher when you're an adolescent. I'm not sure about the 72 cystolic though. To wiki!

SHEdit: I lied. Average blood pressure steadily increases with age. But 140/72 isn't outside the normal range though.

Mine was 180/140 and it caused me to go deaf in my left ear.

So, yeah, let it go untreated, that's a brilliant idea.
