panic and anxiety disorder- internal tremors head to toe

On 3/30/2011 I almost past out at work. When they checked me my blood pressure was 220/120. I was hospitalized overnight. After the hospitalization, I started experiencing internal tremors from head to toe along with what appeared to be panic and anxiety disorders. The anxiety and panic disorders have since dissipated but the internal tremors remain, more intense at times and some days mild. I have had workups upon workups but everything appears to be normal. I have they feeling it is connected to the spike in blood pressure as before 3/30 I was the picture of health. Any advice?

Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum

Your symptoms can be due to Generalised anxiety disorder which presents as tremors or due to Blood pressure fluctuations.Kindly record your BP readings for few days and if they are constantly higher then you might require medications.
Practice relaxation techniques as meditation,Yoga etc for peace of mind.

Take Care!

Something similar happened to me and strange but on the same date. I also had bad vertigo. I was put on anti depressants for about four months and it didn't help at all. The internal tremor just got worse. I take all possible vitamins and minerals and calcium and magnesium are helping (I think). My blood pressure is not stable, I have 'sudden jumps' but the medication is so heavy on me, I can't function so I decided not to take them anymore.

Many people who suffer from anxiety/panic disorder also suffer from hypertension. Having one doesn't mean you shouldn't treat the other.
