Have high blood pressure. Taking lisinopril. Why i am getting anxiety attack?

I recently discovered I have high blood pressure . I have been taking 10 mg of lisinopril for about 10 days. I have a lot of anxiety about this...feel like I am having anxiety attacks-sort of a burning feeling that comes in waves(not all the time), heart palpitations, feel like I can t sleep, not hungry. I have a doctor appointment Wednesday. What can I do to relax and reduce anxiety in the meantime?

Welcome HCM
You are having High Blood pressure recently detected, a little bit of anxiety is bound to be there but if it is too much you may require prescription treatment.
You should take less salt
A simple deep breathing exercise can be started immediately,cut your tea,coffee and if you smoke and drink alcohol please quit both.
Hypertension is life style disease so change it as advised and one more thing if you are over weight try to reduce your weight to near ideal level.
Take care
Good Luck.
