Strokes: High blood pressure can cause ischemic or hemorrhagic strokes. If you experience frequent panic attacks, consult a psychiatrist for evaluation,advice and treatment. Your blood pressure may need medication to keep it from spiking. Your physician or cardiologist can advise you best about monitoring and treating hypertension. Stress management therapy and lifestyle changes may also help that.
