I have LOTs of anxiety....i am currently on Cymbalta. I have this horrible fear that i am going to die or have a heart attack....well to make matters worse after having my son 15 months ago i developed high blood pressure. I am currently on 2 blood pressure meds. I am only 27 and i am sooo scared i will have a heart attack or stroke due to the hbp. Anyone think this is just due to stress and anxiety? This is like my WORST nightmare coming true. I have never had any issues with my BP before i had my son. I was in the hospital 2 weeks right before my son was born because of my bp but since then i have been on meds. Any stories or help is appreciated. stressed!
Try to stay calm and not worry so much. It could be due to anxiety or stress. I know whenever I go into the doctor and if im anxious it causes my blood pressure to be higher.Other times when I go to get my blood pressure checked it's alot lower so I do think anxiety plays a factor in high blood pressure.You need to talk to your doctor about it though.
