Does anyone else have this problem? I'm 27, a healthy weight, don't smoke, drink very moderately, NEVER eat junk or fast food...yet the other day I read my blood pressure & it was 143/75. to be fair at the time I was having a massive anxiety attack & my pulse rate went up to 140. So I freaked out & went to the doctor today. I had a panic attack the whole way to the doctors..and in his office. So when he took my blood pressure he told me it was high. He told me not to worry because it's not "super high" & because I'm young it can't hurt me. He thinks I'm generally healthy & told me to relax & take a reding at the grocery store when I'm not worried.
But I'm upset....if I do everything right health wise, why would I have high blood pressure? Is it from anxiety? And if so...how will I ever be able to monitor it correctly? Will I worry so much one day I'll drive my blood pressure up sky high, so much that I have a heart attack? Ahhhh I hate this! Does anyone else have this issue?
