I know that these two are connected somehow, you can find lot of this kind of suggenstions in the web, but telling the truth I have never found any article, research that proves it. For the past 3 years I have been suffering from ventricular arrhythmias, mild hypertension and neurosis (including panic and anxiety attacks), all combined.
My BP is always about 90/130-90/140, sometimes (rare) 90/150. I have never been treated for hypertension itself (unlike for PVCs - metoprolol, and neurosis - escitalopram), but I have been suggested to do so after EP Study in one of the best medical centers that specializes in cardiac arrhythmias treatment in Poland. They couldn't induce anything, so I have been told that these are good news, and that my hypertension may be de reason of PVCs (sometimes nsVT), which I am sceptic about. I have always connected my BP with stress brought by worring about my heart condition which finally ended in neurosis, panic attacks.
What bothers me is the fact, that if you start to treat your BP, there is small chance that you could ever stop, and I am only 29, dont know it is good idea to treat BP if it is the mild one - is this worth becaming dependent of medicine at that age... So I stared to look for the answers and still cant find any, I am not able to find any article that proves hypertension being a reason of an arrhythmia. Maybe some of you were more efficient in your research?
