Please proceed with your query.

answer that i got from doc is it may be becoz unknow reasons
i am not sure what to do but i take medicin regulary

What are the bp readings when you take medicines?
How about your lifestyle?
Is it stressful?
i prefer eating home food
not exactly stressful
but it use to be but now not that much
Do you follow any routine physical exercises?

May I know the investigations done recently and are all the reports normal?

Do you monitor your bp in home?
and how frequently?
Do you have any fear while checking your Bp that it would be high?
or when you visit your doctor?
yes i am little claustrophobic and i get afraid very easily
yes little but i try to be as normal as possible
Thank you for the details
So, it is due to stress, lifestyle changes and idiopathic
Idiopathic means no cause found
The other would be due to secondary causes like tumors, renal dysfunction
or any other metabolic causes.
As you are young, it is very important to rule out other causes first.
So, I advise you to go for complete body checkup to rule out any metabolic causes.
ok because when i did reports they where normal and doc told me there is no resons but u need to careful and take medicin to control this first and do yoga
Yes, I understand but you did not get complete body checkup.
ok what are the test that you will recommend me i stay in XXXXXXX so any good place where i can visit and do all these tests
That is why I asked you regarding investigations done by you.
You can visit any multispeciality hospital and get a general body checkup.
Once that is done, the doctor would advise further checkups if required.
One more cause I feel in you is the fear of having high BP.
This is usually known as white coat syndrome
may be but how to deal with this
commonly found in people with high bp but unable to find a cause.
The best way to deal with this is regular meditation, yoga and do not check your BP regularly.
And when you for Bp monitoring by your doctor, do not think about it.
thanks for the help Dr Aswin :)
You need to continue your medication as advised by your doctor for now.
yes i am doing
Keep your self hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids atleast 2 to 3 ltrs/day
monitor your fluid intake and the volume of urine passed
Try to restrict salt intake as much as possible.
Get the health checkup at the earliest.
sure i avoid salt a lot
and other things i wll surly try to do
If possible you can post the reports of check up here so that we can discuss further and how to deal with it.
i go to loo very frequently
How many times a day?
5-6 times or more
and approx how much water do you consume
around 2 to 2.5
Any burning sensation while passing urine?
Might be due to infection.
but i feel like i am not done with it after peeing
We need to check the cause of it by getting an USG abdomen which is included in the general health check up plan usually.
So lets get the checkup done at the earliest.
ok sure i will do the test and share with you
thanks bye bye
so that we can plan further treatment accordingly.
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
