Writing this as I have recently gone off my blood pressure tablets, fluid tablets, and guess what, my blood pressure is fine. When I was 24yo I was told my bp was sky high (175/110 and resting heart rate of 75-95) and this required medication. This was pretty typical of most of my last 23 years of treatment. Different docs, different tabs, high readings.
My revelation is I am sure my BP was a symptom of what I have now been diagnosed with …. Acute anxiety and Stress Disorder. Guess what, now my fight or flight response is under control, my blood pressure has been perfect for the last 2 months – average readings are 124/75 and resting heart rate 54-65.
So, I guess I am writing this to ask you all to respect and listen to your GP, but seek other opinions too. I now meditate, have strategies in place to deal with stress and feel amazing.
