Stress is not good to the heart.
I am Dr.Rovena and I had gone through your query and medical history.
Being anxious put the body in a stressful situation and our brain perceives anxious situation like life-threatening situation and send signals to the body preparing the body for defense.For this reason acceleration of the heartbeat and increasing blood pressure is a natural response of our body to anxious situation.
Is obvious that palpitations and high blood pressure
are due to your anxiety and when this symptoms happen it is called Generalized Anxiety Disorder
If you had heart disease
you would have these symptoms all time and your cardiologist would figure it out during the physical examination.
Is the same thing for high blood pressure.If you had hypertension
you would have it all time,not only in anxious situation.
This repetitive sympotoms (high blood pressure and fast heart rate
) doesn't cause any directly damage to your heart for two reasons :-one is that this doesn't happen all the time and second because your heart is healthy.
But you have to understand that stress itself is a risk factor for heart disease.
I suggest to take regularly your treatment,avoid stressful situations.
There are also self-care measures that people with anxiety can do to help make treatment more effective. Since substances like caffeine, alcohol, and illicit drugs can worsen anxiety, those things should be avoided. Other tips to prevent or manage anxiety symptoms include engaging in aerobic exercise
and stress-management techniques like deep breathing, massage therapy
, and yoga.
