Re: does anxiety attacks cause low blood pressure

I almost think the opposite. When I am feeling on the verge of an anxiety attack I have taken my blood pressure and it is very low, so I thought that might be the cause of my anxiety.

Re: does anxiety attacks cause low blood pressure

i agree, when i feel anxious my blood pressure goes up. i usually have a low blood pressure, all it makes you feel, is a little light headed sometimes.

Re: does anxiety attacks cause low blood pressure

I know that Anxiety medication can cause lowered blood pressure due to relaxation on the nervous system. I'm not sure if anxiety can cause it...but anxiety can pretty much cause anything, so who knows.

Re: does anxiety attacks cause low blood pressure

It's the exact opposite for me. Anxiety attacks make my blood pressure sky rocket. I now take blood pressure meds, mainly because of how high my blood pressure gets when I'm anxious, which is often.
