Hi ,i have blood pressure that spikes to 140/100 some days it is present, some days it is not, it spikes when I am in stress or have to do lot of stressful work lije exams time, should I take antihypertensive to control this blood pressure, otherwise my thyroid and other tests are normal. I am young also and prefer to avoid antihypertensive. Kindly tell .e whether there is a need for antihypertensive or not. I also experience flushing of face sometimes, heaviness in head, palpitations also.
