    I went to the ER :-(

    I went to the ER Wednesday night, convinced was having a stroke or something. I was home alone watching tv and found myself unable to understand/follow what was going on. This sent me into a full blown panic attack. My son picked me up and took me to ER. Everything was ok except my blood pressure was crazy. I was still in a panic when I got there and t was 151/100. It spiked when I panicked again to 174/120. They let me go home convinced it was spiking to to my anxiety. I bought a BP cuff the next day and have been checking it randomly. It's still high. I'm 37 and totally worried I'm going to stroke out or have renal failure or something. I have another appointment with my reg doctor tomorrow. I don't want to be on BP meds already, but this may be the only answer. Anyone else ever had similar experience?

    Hi I was not young when I got the high blood pressure, My trigger was putting down, my loyal dog . I had her over 12 years, and it was difficult even the vet came to home. Immediately I got sick but I was in such shock I could not breathe, I checked it and it was very high. From regular 90/60 my whole life I went over 160 , from this time on I am on meds, Sure my bp spikes as soon as I get upset , stressed, eh I think you should use meds, it is better to be safe than end as vegetable
    Strokes happen to younger and younger people so talk to doctor
