    can I be different and suggest not having a blood pressure machine I dont want to disagree with anyone unless they suffer from high blood pressure but i would get it checked at the doctors because having one at home you will be constantly checking it which if you are suffering from anxiety and you think its up it will make you panic even more stress and anxiety will put your bp up Ive been on bp medication for years and yes I have a bp machine but i very rarely use it if i think my bp is up i go to one of our chemists as they will do this for free also bp machines the home ones can go wrong as once it told me my bp was 300/130 now i know i should be having a stroke at this rate so i went straight to the doctor who said it was a tad high and i was feeling stressed. go to the doctors my love as with anxiety it can make your head feel like that it feels like all the stress is contained in your head and its busting at the seems but please get your bp checked Im not here to upset anyone just dont want you to have any further stress i was one that used to constantly check my bp when my anxiety was high. I hope you get sorted out. I dont know where your from but if you have to pay to visit your gp is your a@ e free (hospital) get it checked there Im in england and we are fortunate that we have our nhs but our pharmacies will also do lots of checks free too

    Thank you all so much for replying it really nice of you all to take the time. I have health anxiety quite bad I'm from England also ,., just seems that lately when even the slightest bit of stress comes it makes me feel physically ill ... My daughter is having so much trouble at school 15 and almost left but I'm in constant battle with the school it's a joke I've even started cryin in my sleep ... I used to do so well I'm stressful situations but it seems I carnt even relax when my eyes are shut at night !! I worry that with all this stress my brain feels something bad will happen xx

      When your thoughts arent going well think avout other things.maybe bake cookies with your daughter. Shop with her. It will do youl both good. Dont let bad things happen and dont assume bad things are happening when there are all types of path and alternatives to a good or respectable triumph.
