Hello all. Well I was at my doc appointment and my BP was 130/90. This was the highest its ever been. A few months ago and prior yrs its always been near perfect. I have been monitoring it the past few weeks and its been right around 120-130/85-90. I work 3rd shift, chew tobacco, smoke only when drinking on weekends (if I drink), currently cutting out energy drinks. I recently lost my mom back in October and that has put a great deal of stress on me along with some other life stresses. I do know that the anxiety caused by that has played a role I am sure. I have been exercising and trying to eat a bit better but I cant get my sleep down very well. Its normally about 5hrs per day. Im trying to figure out why all the sudden my BP is so high. Sometimes when I stress about something I get a sudden dizzy feeling and my eyes don't focus. It happens for a split second. These numbers may not be accurate either. Right before I went into the doctor I was drinking a caffeinated drink and have a chew in my mouth. I know my own stupidity. Where to start!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Your blood pressure is fine and needs continuous diet lifestyle modifications and some anxiolytics and nothing to worry about.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
