The ONE organ responsible for high blood pressure.
Does anxiety directly affect a person with high blood pressure?
Can anxiety cause high blood pressure? Anxiety does not cause long-term high blood pressure (hypertension). However, episodes of anxiety can cause dramatic, temporary spikes in blood pressure. If these temporary spikes occur frequently, such as daily, they can cause damage to blood vessels, the heart and kidneys, similar to chronic hypertension. In addition, people who are anxious or stressed are more likely to engage in unhealthy habits that can raise blood pressure, such as:
- Cigarette smoking
- Drinking alcoholic beverages
- Symptoms of low blood pressure
- luminosity or dizziness
- bad feeling.
- blurred vision.
- general feeling of weakness.
