High blood pressure with high pulse

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am 31 year old male.I have suffered from anxiety or panic attack from couple of years. I have recently checked my blood pressure, its 140/110.

Doctor prescribed me pinom CT 20 once after meal.

The problem is i have very high heart rate.My resting heart rate is 78bpm. After workout it goes upto 90 bpm. And after meal its measured as fast as 110 bpm while i am walking and 96 to 100 while i am sleeping. I am really anxious to see such a fast heart rate. This is something i have never experienced before.

Before anxiety attact my resting heart heart rate was in 60s and average heart rate was 72 bpm. After talking the medication it never came down below 76 bpm. What should I do, sometimes i think i am having a heart attack. I have checked symptoms of heart attack as well as heart failure. None of the symptoms resembles my situation. I am really annoyed also panicked. Please help.

    To me your anxiety is the problem, you may need some help getting it under control and for me and my husband understanding why your brain insists on going into the fight or flight mode helped big time.

    My husband suffers from heart failure caused by a very nasty virus that did severe damage to his heart muscle.

    His heart beat was in the 70's, his blood pressure was perfectly normal at 130/78, and yet when the specialist did a echocardiogram she was shocked at how far damaged his heart was.

    Symptoms were extreme shortage of breath, coudn't walk up 6 steps without stopping, dizziness when he pushed through and weakness in leg muscles.

    This advanced to what appeared to me to be exhaustion, would fall asleep as soon as he came home from work, the moment he sat down in a chair he would fall asleep, Dr's later told me later he was probably passing out, and then would wake up 10 mins later.

    Local Dr at that point said nothing wrong with him, but I just knew better, asked for cardio's opinion, thats how the echocardiogram came about.

    Admitted to Heart Hospital where they stablised him, did a angiogram that showed no blockages, nearly six years later he is doing very well.

      Sorry about that, computer had a glitch.

      HOW DID I Know, with no medical training.

      I JUST KNEW he wasn't his normal self, 40 years of marriage you know what normal is. 

      My sister who is a very senior nurse also pointed out to me that I would recognise heart failure at a 100 yards as our father suffered his entire life with heart failure or dialated cardiomyopathy, so when your husband developed the same symptoms your childhood memories of a breathless father rang alarm bells, she was right even though it had to be pointed out to me.
