Hello,
Thank you for your question,
It seems your requested expert is not on line.
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
Though stress, anxiety from trauma can raise the blood pressure, but this level needs to be followed up with your doctor.
I would suggest to have it measured by your doctor in relaxed condition.
This would find out the exact level of your blood pressure.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

I feel like I got a general answer that I already knew. I plan to follow up with a doctor.
Health Professional: Dr. Saha, Doctor (MD) replied 3 years ago
To be more specific about your level of blood pressure, mild hypertension is systolic blood pressure 140 to 159 mmHg or the diastolic 90 to 99 mmHg.
Moderate to severe is systolic blood pressure 160 mmHg and over or the diastolic 100 mmHg and over.
So your level falls in the category of moderate to severe stage.
However, this needs to be confirmed at a second consultation with doctor.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
