Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum

Pukmonary function tests can be repeated. Another dr can be seen. Blood pressure readings were high and shud not be ignored. Sometimes anxiety, lung disease also causes hypertension, visiting a chest specialist is a good idea, without wasting much time.

Hi Angel,
Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum
First of all plz undergo a pulmonary function test. Then I am suspecting an underlying anxiety or some organic cause for the high BP. You will require atleast one mind calming drug in low doses or relaxation therapy and anti hypertensive drugs. Please consult a qualified doctor for this uphill task.Feel free to contact. Good Luck!!!!
