Comment from: Ricky, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: September 23

I was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure. I was stunned to say the least. Mine doesn't stay regulated very well. One day it will be 120 over 80. The next day it may be 165 over 110. I've always tried to take care of myself. I was also diagnosed with depression issues and panic attacks. It seems they all tie into each other. Is that possible? When it goes up I get all scatter brained and my anxiety kicks in after a couple of up and down days. I take my meds right on time every day. I don't know what more I can do.
