High blood pressure: It MAY be the other way around. Panic attacks raise blood pressure. Please see your doctor so he/she can monitor your BP. See a mental health professional to help you learn strategies to deal w/panic. See www.relaxationresponse.org for some self-help too. Peace and good health.
