High Blood Pressure And Stress - Are They Related?

 


Visitors: 180

One main question that is asked regarding high blood pressure is if stress plays a big factor. Researchers have a hard time answering this question, but through research of my own, I hope to get you some facts about high blood pressure and stress.

First of all, stress is not a good thing to have when dealing with high blood pressure. Stress and anxiety is known to release mass amounts of hormones that increase your heart rate making your blood pressure go higher.

That fact alone tells you that stress is not a good thing to have if you suffer from high blood pressure. You need to look at your daily schedule and take all of the things out that are causing you to get stressed out.

But, does stress make someone develop high blood pressure? That is what puzzles a lot of medical researchers. They are pretty unclear of a set answer. Personally, I don't think that stress alone will make you have constant high blood pressure. I think that you need a combination of stress and other problems to have constant high blood pressure.

So, let's talk a little more about stress. Let's say that you have high blood pressure already and you have been stressing all day over a public speech that you have to give at the end of the day. You can find that your blood pressure is going to be even higher all day that day because of the stress.

The same is true if you do not suffer from normal high blood pressure. If you are stressing all day long, you will have a higher blood pressure throughout that day, and some researchers believe that if this happens often enough, stress could set on high blood pressure all of the time requiring either medication or other form of treatment.

Stress can be a real tricky topic to discuss when we are talking about it's relationship to high blood pressure. If you have had high blood pressure for a while now you need to start now and get rid of the stress that is in your life day to day. Stress is a bad thing since it makes you produce more hormones that are responsible for increasing your heart rate. Stress is your enemy if you suffer from high blood pressure.

As far as treating high blood pressure and stress, you will most likely be prescribed medications to keep your blood pressure normalized. This can be alpha blocker, beta blockers, etc.

The bad thing, however, is that these medications have nasty side effects that take a toll on your body and could cause you to get even more stressed out. The good thing is that there are other treatments available that are proven to get rid of high blood pressure and stress!

Did you know that most people who suffer from high blood pressure and stress do not even know they have treatment options available, and don't know what they are doing that could be triggering their high blood pressure?

Don't be left in the dark. Find out how you can get rid of high blood pressure and stress for good!
