Before I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and ever since i have been taking medication, i have periods of anxiety daily. Some days are better. Are these mood swings and anxiety related to high blood pressure spiking even though I'm taking medication daily?
It is possible that the high blood pressure is causing the Anxiety. To be honest any disease, illness or disorder can cause anxiety to manifest. Plus medications can cause anxiety to develop or become worse. You really need to talk to your doctor regarding this and see if there is a way in which this problem can be solved.
Also just to add, knowing that you have high blood pressure can cause anxiety within itself, the worry etc..... so maybe doing somekind of relaxation may be of benefit to you.
