Question by notsoanonymousiguess: What are same ways to naturally lower high blood pressure, no prescriptions?
I get hypertensive crisis’s often, where my BP and pulse will just jump to a high level at a moment’s notice, for no reason. Until the doctors are able to figure out why this is happening, what are some ways to lower my BP, without prescription meds? I need some immediate relief now, as I feel one of those hypertensive crisis’s coming on at this moment, but also want to prevent these crisis’ in the first place. These “spells” are VERY distressing and uncomfortable. They disable me while I am having one. They peak at about 1.5 hours but have lasted all day sometimes as well. I have no risk factors for high bp, I am thin, young (35), eat well. I am open to trying anything, herbs, supplements, activities, etc…..thanks to anyone who can help.
John. I went to the ER for it and they were really mean to me, told me it was “somatic” and/or a panic attack. They gave me Ativan but the BP was still dangerously high when they kicked me out. They told me not to come back when this happens again. Now I am already on Xanax for anxiety, so I know it was not a panic attack. I have had anxiety my whole life, so I know what it feels like and this is not it. So they had me on Ativan and Xanax and the BP/pulse was still very high. They made me leave. These are all new symptoms. My resting BP and pulse are well above normal. When I have the “spells” I am usually doing nothing. Last night, was just watching TV and my pulse shot up in a second and the high BP followed. I also get a monster headache when this happens. It is very scary…I hate it.
Thanks for answering me.
My anxiety is well controlled by medicine. I do not feel anxious before or during the time this is happening.
We have a familial history of endocrine disorders. Until I can get in to see an endocrinologist I need to find a way to to lower these BP and pulse spikes. I do not want to take blood pressure medicine, it wipes me out. Problems with the endocrine system can cause these spikes, especially since there is a familial history of it.
