High & Low Blood Pressure Message Board


High & Low Blood Pressure Board Index


I am a 28 Year old male. I feel I am in decent shape with the exception that I am a tad heavier built. I am 6'3" and 250lbs. I have had issues with anxiety off and on since 2007 (mostly on). Anyways, when I last saw my general physician about my anxiety, my blood pressure was elevated. Everytime I even see the blood pressure machine in the docs office, i wig out and start getting extremely anxious. I mentioned my concern and that I was interested in sorting out whether or not my elevated bp levels were caused by anxiety or something else. He referred me to a Hypertension and Kidney specialist. During my initial visit with this specialist, my anxiety was out of control. He basically gave me some orders to get a ton of labwork done and instructed me to take my bp at home for a few days and bring in the results.

At home, of course, I feel much more at ease. However, I wanted to share my blood pressure levels with folks in order to get some opinions as to if they would warrant any concern or if I would be considered OK.

Here they are for the past couple days:
