Can anxiety raise blood pressure.
« on: January 23, 2014, 06:26:37 AM »
I've had two weeks of severe anxiety attacks. Two times I've tested with high bp (until about a month ago, its always been normal). Has this happened to other people? Does your bp return to normal once anxiety becomes more under control?

YES!!!!!! I donate blood regularly, and part of their tests involve taking BP and heart rate, and sometimes they have to do mine a few times because I get so anxious being in there or am having a bad anxiety day that my readings are super high!!! Then I have to explain I am okay haha :)

Everything will be alright in the end. If it's not alright, it's not the end. :)

I used to be an adventurer like you. Then I took an arrow in the knee. :p

Once you calm down, your blood pressure should return to normal levels.
