Q.

How is it possible that my blood pressure reading is... if?

26 y/o male, exercise... a couple times a week jogging and lifting moderately.. Blood pressure readings were: 150/65 , 143/62 , 155/70 Resting heart rate: 58-70, Right after finishing my sprint just now it went from 145 down to 135.. within a couple more minutes 85, then half an hour later its back down to 70. How is it possible to have such high systolic readings of blood pressure with such an optimal pulse? What could cause this? And what are my risk factors? My GP just gave me a few blood tests, urine sample, and has me going for a few x-rays. Any ideas?
