Hey bud, I'm going to take another angle here. It does sound like your blood pressure stuff could be related to anxiety or panic disorder. Although masturbation and sex does increase the heart rate, its only for a short period of time. At your age the 3 time a day routine isn't that much to be concerned about. I'm sorry to hear about your Mom and wonder if that may be playing a role here. Grief can really kick our butt. Have you been getting support as a result of her death? Did you go through any counseling afterwards? Do you think you are depressed, have you allowed yourself to truly grieve the loss of your Mom? Reason I'm asking is that one of the things we do when we are depressed is use other things to deal with it....masturbation, sex, alcohol or other drugs, excessive sleep....stuff like that. So, your masturbation and blood pressure stuff could be the result of the grief you're experiencing. If this is true, talk with your Doc and see about getting some counseling or into a support group to help move you beyond this stuff. Hope this helps and if I'm off base here....please let me know! Good luck!
