I have high blood pressure and since i started tracking my pressure i noticed i am easer to get along with when my pressure is close to normal, as my pressure goes up, i get sour. I dont have insurance and i live from check to check and i support my wife and our two kids, one is 14 and other is 2, money is tight to say the least. I don't know what to do. seek family doc. or see a mental professional. please help
It sounds like your increase in blood pressure is related to anxiety. When we get anxious, our blood pressure rises, and we become agitated due to the anxiety. When you are starting to feel "sour" do things to relax yourself, like deep breathing exercises. High BP normally has no symptoms and this is why it's called the "silent killer." If you are feeling sour then you know to get yourself calmed down to lower your BP, this is a very common problem with anxiety sufferers. If you are on BP medication, you BP shouldn't be spiking and you need to find out why it is. It may be anxiety, but see your doctor and find out for sure. I hope this helps and take care!
