Re: Blood pressure and severe white coat syndrome
I feel your pain, I also have pretty bad anxiety. It used to be medicated but I don't treat it anymore, and my life is pretty full and rewarding, I learned to deal with it. But not when it comes to blood pressure, it makes me so nervous! I'm only 21, active, a little on the skinny side, pretty healthy diet, but my blood pressure is pretty high. I went to the doctors, they took my blood pressure it was around 160/90. the nurse made me laugh a bit and relax, took it again it was around 140/80. I took it at CVS a week later out of curiousity, got nervous when my arm was in the sling, and it was bumped up to 160/90 again. that freaked me out, I worked myself up about it, nearly having a panic attack, took it at that state of mind it was 180/82. I dunno, the first one was so dangourusly high, but then the second went down. pretty weird, that was last night I haven't taken it again, I'm gonna relax and forget about it, and try it again in a few days. Glad to hear yours is doing better though
