    gold standard of blood pressure at age 20 is 120/80 and pulse 72 . therefore 81 seems ok. stress and tension if in uncomfortable situations can make it feel fast however if you are concerned check up with your GP

    The Dr will tell you and has Brain washed maney that 120/80 if 120/80 is gold standard my Bloodpreahure runs 110/60 so what's that then it was 152 /90 lost 2 stone

      Sounds like anxiety to me.

      Imagine you are living in a cave and the Sabre Tooth Tiger comes to eat your family, its a ancient survival instinct FIGHT or FLIGHT.

      We still have that instinct its perfectly natural.

      What is not natural is not understanding it, and not making the effort to understand it, that helps you to cope with those feelings just knowing why, and your enquiry is a great start.

      This understanding has worked very well for my husband he has developed anxiety after a major heart failure and congestive heart failure episode that he was lucky to have survived.

      He was also told to wear a rubber band on his wrist, not too tight, just there, and when these feelings come to pull tight it and let go, enough so it stings/hurts but does no harm, seems to overide the anxiety attack, worth a try, yes, can't do any real harm, again does it work, YES.

      I don't fully understand why it works, maybe just re-directing the brain from thinking doom and gloom (Sabre tooth tiger), and thinking PAIN instead.

      Our brain is an amazing organ of our body, and even the Dr's will tell you they are learning all the time, we can retrain ourselves to overcome these hurdles, maybe its all just part of the learning process.
