A 37-year-old female asked:
If one had low blood pressure due to an underlying health issue such as internal bleeding, would their blood pressure still rise when feeling anxious?

Don't believe so.: Two things. First, I would not think that hypotension from such hemodynamic instability would rise significantly if you were to become simultaneously anxious. Second, if something was going on causing such low blood pressure, there would typically be other signs, such as a very high heart rate, sweating, or just an obvious source of bleeding or infection.
