I have always had normal bp until I got sick with gerd a couple of years ago. Now I go to the doc and it is 130/90 so I started checking it at home. I checked this morning and it was 116/80. Then I got a phone call and had to be put on hold and due to the nature of the upcoming call I got anxious. I started feeling tight in my chest and just could tell I was nervous. So I took my bp and it was 146/80. Later on...about 15 min after the phone call was resolved and I felt like I was calm..no more physical symptoms...I took it again and it was 126/90.
Am I just obsessing or should I call my doc? I go for a physical in a few weeks anyway...I just don't know enough about bp to know whether or not to be concerned. I have a lot of stress right now cause I am having trouble with my gerd and I am a caregiver to my husband and my daughter is moving away to live on her own....oh!! and I am starting a new job...which we need for me to have the money to afford to have gerd (only half kidding)
Thanks for any feedback.
