Wondered if anyone had any advice, I went to GP over a year ago and had extremely high bloodpressure! Was put on amlodipine but had nightmare side affects so changed to ramapril! My GP said my BP was stress related after loads of different tests, after much discussion agreed to take citalopram for my anxiety, I am so traumatised from the High BP as I had to stay at docs for over an hour and she checked my eyes as I think she was checking if I had stroke symptoms! I have been very stressed in the past but over the last yr I have learnt to do relaxation, do yoga weekly, have reflexology, don't drink much, exercise regularly, eat well but do smoke! I take my BP at home and when I am relaxed it is fine but I panic when I see the machine and then if the reading is high I have a panic attack! I get dizziness when I lay down and worry if this is my blood pressure. Have to do my BP at home to get readings for my GP but so worried! Help
