My Anxiety Story

Anxiety and hypertension, a vicious cycle, the hypertension causes a rise in blood pressure and the high blood pressure causes anxiety. I have been dealing with this for more than 30 years. It isnít constant and sometimes I can go for several years without an incident. Iíve never taken medication but I have seen a therapist and all kinds of MDs. I have gone to the ER more times than I can remember, Iíve had countless test done on my heart, my stomach, complete physicals, checked for vitamin decencies and so on. Other than the high blood pressure I seem to be in pretty good health.
Right now I am experiencing pounding heart beats, extra & skipped heartbeats, headache, tension & of course high blood pressure. I have no idea what brought this on, I just woke up one day with these symptoms. They seem to be more prevalent when I am resting (thinking) and I hardly notice them when I am busy or exercising. My mind goes back & forth. One minute I am sure I am having a heart attack the next I am sure it is anxiety.
So what helps me? I try to keep my mind and body occupied and think pleasant thoughts.
