No one has any idea. All I get is "it's probably hereditary." My dad's BP is sometimes high, but mine has been high consistently since I was in high school. Personally I think it's a bunch of bullshit, that none of these doctors have even bothered to investigate why someone in his twenties who's not fat or diabetic would have consistently high BP.
Pro-tip: Find a doctor that doesn't jump to conclusions.
Earlier this year I developed a strange problem breathing (well, it's been there for a couple of years now, but it didn't bother me until recently). Most doctors would just dismiss it as a cold.
Then I decided to see a better doctor and, after a series of apparently bizarre exams, he found out I had an abnormal bone growth inside my nasal cavity.
