My sodium and potassium levels are normal. My ldl was slightly elevated at 127 past 99 but my overall cholesterol is within the normal range. I have no blood clots or plaque. Why do I have high blood pressure?

      @Guss I’m the exact same. They told me there’s no real answer for it and said I’d be fine and then left me on my way, but the symptoms persist. Western medicine sometimes doesn’t give you the attention you need unless you have something obvious. They care more about defining what something is so they can look it up in their textbooks rather focusing on relieving symptoms and feeling unwell.

      Yea I was looking into it more I feel like beta blocker would be something that can help to lower the blood pressure/ tachycardia so I can at least be able to make adjustments to my lifestyle that are needed

      While I hated the answer when it was told to me, a lot of this is in our head. It’s our bodies creating physical symptoms because of a cyclic regularity of chronic pain, discomfort, or stress that we subconsciously induce on ourselves. Mindfulness, meditation, bringing heart rate down, exercise, water, cutting out processed foods all helped me come back to a baseline where it’s manageable. I have done Japanese acupuncture as well which has helped. Western medicine can be great, but when these funny little chronic things happen to us, sometimes a pill won’t fix it, but lifestyle might.

        @Son_of_the_Dragon I see, I forgot to mention I have tachycardia so my heart rate is at 101 sometimes it even goes up to 120 but it changes randomly and I’m sure if it was anxiety that set off my rapid heart beats. Dr say there isn’t anything dangerous happening and they haven’t found anything in my blood work that indicates signs of problems. My blood work came back good. So this week they are going look for other things. I even had a ekg and they said it looked normal, the high blood pressure was their and tachycardia was their but nothing abnormal. They did X-rays and even a ultrasound and saw that my heart was normal.
