Has anybody heard of benign tremor and high blood pressure spike

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have had several of these occurring in the middle of the night. my blood pressure will Spike to 198 over 97 give or take a few numbers. my arms will shake and the trunk of my body and my neck will feel Ridgid. I have heard it is from stress and after taking an extra half of blood pressure med and some klonopin it eventually goes away. It used to scare me more but I have gotten quite used to it. my dad also had it.

    diana88467...Have you reported this to your doctor???? Also, a person should NEVER take an extra dose of bp medication even though it's only 1/2 dose.

    You said you "heard" your symptoms are caused by stress...The best person who's word to accept is the Doctor.

    Do yourself a favour...consult your doctor...get the lowdown on it...from a professional & by all means, tell him/her that you've taken 1/2 dose extra of the bp medication. Stop this dangerous practise.
