Diastolic rising to above 110
I am a 38 year old male, fairly active (football), 5 foot eleven and 175 pounds. My bp is 140/100 to 110. What would be causing the high diastolic....i am a very anxious person, but shouldn't that effect the systolic more?
I saw my doc this morning, and am having an ECG and blood test next week.
These readings are sending me into a panic, and obviously making things worse. I have a monitor at home, but I just can't relax, as soon as I press the button, i can feel my head thumping and adrenaline pumping. However, my pulse is always below 70.
