Panic Attack and High Blood Pressure

Many of us suffer from panic attacks. There are many ways to combat it but it can be hard at times. One of the bad things about having a panic attack and high blood pressure is that the two don’t mix well. They can cause quite a bit of trouble for a person.

Mainly the first problem that a panic attack and high blood pressure causes is cardiovascular damage. When you have a panic attack if you cannot control it your blood pressure will be affected. If you have high blood pressure this can lead to damage to your bodies cardiovascular system. Mainly your arteries and heart.

The second problem may be dizziness, feeling light headed, blurry visions, fatigue, and passing out. These are not things you want to have happen to you period, much less in the middle of a panic attack. The best way to take care of this is to attack the panic attacks before they can attack you. This may sound funny at first but it works.

You can go to a doctor and ask them for help dealing with your panic attack and high blood pressure. But all they will do is give you medications that might not work right. Some of them have nasty side affects as well and can cause more harm than good. But take heart there are natural methods for taking care of this.

The first thing to do when you have panic attack and high blood pressure is exercise. Exercising regularly keeps you in shape, and helps you stay healthy. It can also lower your blood pressure. This is a good thing. Not to mention it can help prevent panic attacks in the first place as you will have less spare energy.

The second method is meditation. Meditating every day can help keep your blood pressure down as well. It will keep you in a constant relaxed state and during this time your heart rate will decrease and become easy. Not a bad easy a good easy. Like a relaxed pumping. We want this, this is a good thing.

The final natural thing you can do when you have an anxiety attack and high blood pressure is to breath. Practicing controlling your breathing so when you have an attack you can keep your breath nice and level. This will help keep your pressure low. After all if the panic is less then the heart will respond less. It’s a little tough to do but better than the alternative right?

To wrap things up dealing with anxiety attack and high blood pressure can be difficult at times. When the attack hits it can be crippling and in some cases terrifying. But it’s important to stay calm and not give into the fear. Keeping your breathing under control and keeping your emotions steady can help you through it, and make it last less. In addition exercising can help improve the strength of your cardiovascular system so in the event something does happen you won’t break as easily.
