I have constant very high anxiety and in the past 4 months it's been every single day, extremely high levels...
In November I started having occasional mild night sweating, in January I started having hot flashes when emotional or agitated and in February I've started to feel fatigued, dizzy, brain foggy, tense, headachey, unfocused...
Yesterday I was visiting some relatives and I took my blood pressure at their place. It was 147/87. That's very high considering my normal is around 110/70. I didn't feel particulary anxious but I felt tense and dizzy and unfocused. I often do in the last weeks.
Now I feel the same way, I very very tense and have a flickering feeling in my chest, my throat is so tight and my blood pressure is 150/90. Last Christmas when I checked it it was 105/70.
Now I'm even more afraid because of my BP, I'm thinking adrenal tumours and what not - but I did have an ultrasound in February and they checked my kidneys - so I suppose they would have seen an adrenal tumour there, right?
Can my chronic, long term high anxiety cause my blood pressure to rise like this? Can the high BP & anxiety cause my dizziness and headaches and brain fog? How about the hot flashes?
Adding: my thyroid levels are normal, more towards hypo but still in the normal range (my doc told me I'm absolutely fine so I'll take her word), I had full abdominal ultrasounds done in Nov & Feb, I had blood tests - CBC + iron + blood sugar + creatinine + uric acid done in Nov (perfect), had urine tests in Feb (perfect), had a cervical MRI done in Nov which also captured my hypothalamus and much of my brain (perfect).
