In Reply to: Re: High BP causes symptoms?? posted by Aileen on November 14, 2000 at 04:13:15:

: Over the last 6 months, i have experienced increased pressure in my head which seems to have spread throughout my body, I have undergone multiple tests, blood work, CT, and echo check for my bicuspid aortic valve, all fine, bp is ranges between 140/90 and 150/95 most of the time,(although at the upper limit of normal range Dr's will not prescribe meds) could a 5 yr slight increase in bp, higher than my own limit have this culminating effect on my body?? I'm going crazy any advice please??

: Gee, my laymans comment is I doubt it - any chance is psychological - just you stressing out about it?

: Does something like aspirin or an anti-inflammatory have any effect on it? Have there been any lifestyle changes in that period of time?


I would not think so. I have had my BP at 250/150 and not had any idea it was that close to stroking out. Your symptoms do sound as if they might be stress related.Not especially stress over the BP readings but just life stresses in general....especially the full head sensation. You may be having a type of migraine. It sounds as if your Dr has done a thorough work up and found things to be OKTry some relaxation therapy with biofeedback. Most books on the subject of relaxation contain info on reducing BP and stress side effects.
