You may need medical: High blood pressure needs an evaluation and possibly treatment from a doctor. If the BP is running over 140/90 when you are restful and calm, it requires treatment for which you should visit your doctor especially if you have multipme readings over several days show high blood pressure values.

To diagnose high blood pressure one needs to have the most accurate device that can be found. This is still a BP taken by a trained human listening to the BP and using a calibrated manometer. i never trust an automated device for my patient unless i can validate it as accurate by auscultation. One reason may be that this patient's arm is not being supported and cuff in wrong place.

BP up? Act now!: Hypertension is a serious matter. See your physician and get on medication while doing the following at home. Get down to your proper weight. Low salt and ideally plant/fruit based diet. Exercise every day, even simple walking for over 30 minutes. Get any emotional issues under control. Laugh. Love. Be sure you don't have sleep apnea. Eat potassium rich foods. Monitor your BP at home too!

Testing ; treatment: At 22, there is likely to an underlying cause. This person needs to be evaluated. Renal disease, adrenal disease, coarctation, cushings disease, and rarely pheochromocytoma all need to be excluded. Treatment and control are critical. I suggest they should be seen very very very soon.
