Hi i was wondering if anybody could help me with regards the effects of stress.
Not been myself lately say for a couple of months. Feel a bit shaky, nagging fuzziness in my head (but not any real pain) sometimes feel numb when it comes to talking and a strange sensation in my upper chest again no pain but just aware of a slight pressure/flutter feeling.
Also get a pain in my leg if driving or walking up a steep hill
I`m 53 average weight and reasonably fit
My partner booked me in for a check up and my GP suggested it might be stress related. He gave me a routine BP test and i had an initial reading of 215 over 115 !! He ditched the electronic monitor and went for the old fashion method but again was reading over 200.
He said there was a problem and perscribed ramipril.
Had an ECG and blood tests which were OK. BP down to 190 over112 yesterday but still think this is extremely high.
Bought an OMRON today and averaging 190/110.
Heart beat is around 50 which seems low.
I am hoping the ramipril will bring this down.
My question is could stress/anxiety cause these symptoms ? Or is it more likely there is another cause as yet undetected?
Never been a hypochondrac but just a little worried :-)
Be grateful for any replies
