I m 36 yrs old and i discovered that lately my blood pressure increased to 140 / 100 and i know that i m suffering from stress and anxiety. one main reason of my stress is our first newborn. I m his proud dad but I can t sleep at night, due to constant crying and am feeling a lot of responsibility. When i hear him crying i get the urge to go running with him to the g.p and every time he tells me that he s normal. My life seems to have changed upside down.

I am having heart problems. One week a go I was rushed into hospital with high blood pressure of 180/100 and put on a drip etc to calm down. I have suffered similar attacks for about 2 years since I moved from England to Mexico. I often have panic attacks and this seems to cause the high blood pressure. The problem I have now is that every time I panic I think that I am going to have a heart attack which makes me panic further and I end up back in a hospital bed. The doctors did a basic electrical scan of my heart and found nothing at the time. I have lowered my sodium intake since and tried to reduce stress. I was given some pills to help with the process of recovery. The pills do help and my blood pressure seems to be lower, it can now go as long as 88/45, but in an instant of panic it can rise very high and stay there for long periods until I try and calm myself or visit a doctor. I´m only 27 years old and I am beginning to be scared every time I miss a breathe. Is there anything more I can do? Do I need to see an expert? I am living in Mexico and everything is expensive and I´m finding things difficult.
