Your symptoms could be from a thyroid issue, or a heart problem. If you want to monitor yourself, purchase a decent quality blood pressure monitor, you can buy them just about anywhere. Keep in mind though, just because you register high one moment, the next moment it could be normal, what you are looking for is your average blood pressure numbers, yes both top and bottom numbers are important. Write down each reading you take, and at what time of the day it was taken, your pressure will vary throughout the day and evening. Keep track for a month or so, then make an appt with your doc if you find that your readings are higher than the norm. If it does show an elevated amount, adjust your diet and test yourself again for a month or so. Many things can cause your pressure to jump,spike, then drop and be normal. Medications have a great effect, stress and anxiety play there part, and illnesses and disease also can cause issue. Yes, having family members with high blood pressure does make you more aware of the problem, however, you could be perfectly fine and not be having any high readings.
