I understand that anxiety may cause my BP to go up , but how dangerous is it for my body to have a BP that goes up to 160/90 or more sometimes ? I'm 22 fit eat very healthy no red meet no drugs not cigarettes. I'm lacking on some good exercise but whenever I try it makes me more anxious.

My mother recently had quadruple bypass surgery on August 23; however, it seems the cardiologist is unable to control her BP. She takes Coreg 40 mg (2 times a day), Valturna 320/300 mg (once a day) & Clonidine 0.1 mg (as needed). However she still seems to have high BP readings. Is this normal & what could be done to improve (stabilize) her BP?

My 4 year old daughter is due to have an MRI in a week. Neurologist says she wants brain and spine due to her not being potty trained yet or even able to realize she has had a bowel movement....she has been to several docs and clinics and no firm diagnosis,... could the neurologist be thinking tethered cord??? She does have Sensory Processing Dissorder, Anxiety with panic attacks, major sleep disruption issues and hallucinations. They are doing a sleep deprived EEG to see if some of her myoclonis is seizure related. She is on meds: Risperidone and clonidine, with 3 mg. of melatonin as well. She has O.T. and P.T. once per week, with alot of motor control issues, gait , balance and ataxia. I feel she may have most definitely a chromosome deletion problem, genetic...somthing in that area. At one point they mentioned DiGeorge Syndrome, then didn t want to test. I had a Fragile X test started, and it came up negative. (my daughter also has alot of tantrums and inconsolable crying where she cannot stop. Where should I go if MRI and EEG come up with no answers...What next??? Her current psychiatrist suggests I stop looking for answers and work with what I have... I dont think that s a good idea...this is my daughter ...Please give me your opinion.... Thank You So Much, Michelle

My 12 year old brother is having middle stomach pain. This has been going on for about 7 months now. My mom has taken him to the doctor and the have done tests that haven t shown anything out of the ordinary. He has asperger s syndrome and that comes with hypersensitivity issues so this might be hurting him worse then it would someone without these issues. He likes to sleep on the couch at night. He says his stomach hurts more when he sleeps in his own bed. He takes prozac for the asperger s and clonidine to help him sleep. They also put him on Lorazepam because they thought that the stomach pain might be from anxiety.He weighs about 140 and is about 4 9 . We just don t k-now if it s anxiety or something actually physical. Can you help?
