    Systolic blood pressure - anxiety?

    Currently on 250mg test e, no AI

    My ranging blood pressure is 115-140 systolic and 60-75 diastolic

    I am very fit , 29 years old and a very lean 170lb

    I am a pretty anxious guy and this may be reflective onto my systolic, however any other mechanisms that may be impacting my systolic?

    Supps i take;
    - 250mg test e (shot twice week)
    - Carditone 1 tab a day
    - Krill oil, Niacin, Multi


    Thank you

    I wouldn't lose sleep over it with your diastolic being where it is, but I would continue to monitor it for increased values of systolic or diastolic.

    Try measuring your BP at the same time over a period of time. Say...once when you first awake but are still in bed, again after a gym session, and again at bedtime.

    Now if you're injecting 250 mg twice per week, I would probably pull a sensitive E2 panel to see what it is running.

    If you continue to run in the prehypertensive/hypertensive range, you may need something other than Carditone.

    Just remember, the more you worry about it, the more your BP is likely to elevate. Definitely continue to monitor it.

    The question moreso is, is there a specific mechanism that would be translating to a isolated hypertensive case? I've done some extensive reading and it seems ISH is quite common in the AAS world

    High E2 levels can contribute, but usually once it hits, it's more of a generalized side effect. If you're prone to panic attacks or tend to be wound a little tight, that can contribute as well.

    Without knowing your normal genetic blood pressure the numbers you give do not mean a lot.

    If you consider yourself anxious, Iíd say, you should consider yourself fortunate with those BP measurements.

    I am a very anxious person and have had panic attacks before. Before Finals I was in the Athletic Training Room and the Athletic Trainer watched as my blood pressure increased each time he measured it. He looked at me and said that I need to relax.

    After Finals I took my blood pressure and it was in normal range again. That adrenaline dump can throw the numbers off.

    Itís good that youíre aware of it and itís even better that it returns to normal afterwards. Itís the folks that are subconsciously anxious/ stressed that really need to be concerned, particularly if itís already happening when they are young.

    Man, how I donít miss finals (or any tests for that matter).

    One girl in high school had a panic attack and passed out. She hit her head on the locker. Panic attacks are no joke.
