In Reply to: Anxiety? or something wrong? posted by Beth on June 05, 2000 at 21:45:29:

Beth it is me. I have been getting your e-mails and responding but they come back to me telling
me it is a invalid address, I really would like to talk to you. I have severe anxeity disorder. You
sound just like me, I am forever taking my BP. I am on Verapamil 240mg once a day. For the last
2 weeks my BP has been great according to my Electric BP Machine, which I am sure is giving
me an accurate reading. I too am concerned when I feel something is not right with my body,
like if my chest hurts I am like Ok must be a heart attack or if I am dizzy I think heart attack or
stroke, but my bp has been great.

Please e-mail me. I would really like to talk to you.

Tammy: Hi! I sometimes get a little obsessed about my bp. If I feel a hot flash or feel a little "off-balance" I will jump and get my bp monitor. Sometimes it is normal, but when it won't get a reading I will get panicky, thinking it is too high or too low. I had an incident last year when my bp dropped too low, and since then I am paranoid about it. The dr. called it a "vagus reaction" and sent me on my way. Just a minute ago it was too high for me 130/90, then I tried again, and it was 110/86. It runs normally low, like 112/73. Why am I freaking out???? I am sooo sensitive to feelings that are going on with my body! Is this normal? or do I listen to my body and every little twitch , funny feeling, or hot flash and think something is wrong? I am 38 yrs old and sometimes I feel like I am falling apart! Help.
