Our expert says:
There are a multitude of reasons for high blood pressure, hence the tests your doctor is busy running. The most common cause for high blood pressure, is idiopathic. Therefore, no reason at all. I do however, suggest that you a 24 hour blood pressure monitor done, in order to assess your blood pressure over a 24 hour period. This will give a clear idea if you should start taking anti-hypertensive medication.
