    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Im a male 21 in good shape and work out regularly i train cross fit for endurance i have been diagnosed with high blood pressure for over a year now but i believe i have had it moste my life. I go to the doctor all the time but now its getting to be a waste of time and money they just want to put me on a new medication every time but nothing seems to really drop it very much, i check my bp all the time and on a good day ill be 140/ 60 but usually it runs around 170/80
    I dont feel stressed
    iv taken all kinds of tests and blood tests
    the docs dont know anything
    Its just something im going to just have to live with
