How to treat hypertension?

My blood pressure is, on average, around 133/90. I smoke, I'm currently under a lot of stress, from all aspects of life. I sometimes get a pain in my chest, or tightness. I've seen a few doctors, and everytime they tell me my blood pressure is alright, at worst on the high side of normal. The worst I have see it is around 150/100, and that was at the doctors office. I can feel my heart beating at times, and it gets scary, and I know the anxiety only worsens the issue. I have recently noticed a bit of blood when I blow my nose, and when I checked my blood pressure yesterday, it was about 142/95.

>Should I be worried at this point? Thank you.

Hi There

After going through your query I understand your concern.

I would like to tell you that the upper limit for BP is 140/90. But your symptoms are more suggestive of anxiety disorder and anxiety causes temporary spikes in blood pressure. In this situation anxiety should be treated and high blood pressure will be treated itself.

This requires a treatment done with anxiolytics .It's recommended for you to consult a Psychiatrist for further management.

Hope this will help

Kind Regards
