What causes feeling high blood pressure?

Posted on Sat, 24 May 2014
Question: I had surgery for stage 1 breast cancer last May, a crescenteric repair after the lump was removed.
Recently I have been really stressed due to different family circumstances. My blood pressure is 137/94, only checked it once but for some time have felt it is high. Should I be concerned?
Thank you.

Not really.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for your query.

If you have taken your blood pressure once only, and is just 137/94, just above normal, with the stress you have, I do not think you should be really concerned.

Feeling high blood pressure has no role in medical science.

Please check the blood pressure at least for 3 time at different times and at different days. Reduce the salt intake ( if you take added salt), Have less stress.

If required you can request your Doctor to give you a mild anxiolytic.

Meditation and keeping small family issues away will help you maintain a normal blood pressure.

How trivial the things may be for which one takes so much tensions !

(Research shows: 40% of what we worry about never happens, 30% is about what happened in the past, 22% is about petty things, 4% is about what will happen and we can really do nothing about it; please decide about yourself)
