Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   Hi, I am 40years old, I have query regarding Stress. I work with a reputed firm, I am a mechancial engineer and looking after procurement activities. Many time when any comment on me which I donot like (negative) I feel very much upset. Sometimes I reply in the same manner to commentor (whether my senior or wife or relative or junior) and many times I avoid to talk him. But even though I feel very upset inside and my body feels strain. I am suffering from High Blood pressure since last 8months. I met doctors, they always said that this is nothing but stress.
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :

happens around

Jan-09 to June-09 doctor try to convince me that is nothing and I have to change my life style and it did work and I found little bit confidense in myself. But in the same time I have BP (min 100 and max 139) and ultimately doctor gave me medicine for BP and stress though he donot want (nobapil for BP and cilendra-10 for Stress). I was taking till 15Nov. Though I donot feel any BP or weekness in myself but there is always body strain / stress. This is total problem. Now, please let me know, i) What is this problem whether BP / Stress / Lack of confidense / wrong life style (I never smoke and drink or take tobacco) / heritery problem / Heart related issue ?
