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.

Hold on if you feel like letting go.

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