dont know about the readings but when panicky you must breathe deep and slow and avoid rapid shallow panting as this can bring on hyperventilation, which is quite separate from a panic attack, and which you dont need

hyperventilation can make you faint

hi there. yes i have noticed my blood pressure radings are high when i am at the drs, and i usually have panic attacks at the office. it seems to be high every time i go, i am very nervous and anxious so that could explain it, or i am starting to develop high blood pressure. the highest it has been was 170 over 100.beats per minute 125. the last was 85 beats 170/100. maybe she counted wrong because it felt like it was going faster. i have counted my own beats and has gone up over 200 beats per min. i have purchased my own blood pressure machine to monitor bp, now i am nervous about bp. dr told me that bp can go high while having panic attack, but suggested to keep an eye on bp. maybe you should consider buying one your self. not to expnsive, bought at walmart. it is the writst monitor and is very easy to use. price 58.00. how old are you, if you dont mind me asking. as we get older bp changes. i am 43, getting up there. everyhting starts to change as we get older.(stinks). hope you feel better.

My bp when anxious not even in a full attack is about 150 over 110. The doc always says you shouldn't take a reading then as you're bound to get a high result which then leads to more panic. My pulse I try not to take even when I can feel it's faster for that very reason.

aussieangel, hi hope all is well. i know waht you mean about getting panicky about the blood pressure. thats what makes me more anxious at the drs office. when they tell me its high i get more anxious. even to look at the bl machine makes me very nervous. i purchased a home monitor about 3 months ago, i was very nervous just to try it. i finally got the nerve to use it. it had to be with my husband around. i was going to refuse to have my bp taken at the drs office, my husband was with me and he told me no to be ridiculos, that nothing would happen to me if i were to take my bp. i know that when i hear the high numbers it triggers another anxiety. what scares me also are those machines at walmart or pharmacies, they are scarey to me. it states that it can make you pass out. i stay away from them totally.
