It said that anger responses can cause a ripple effect throughout the body: From the cardiovascular system to your nervous system, it’s all fair game. Anger can also cause some diseases such as high blood pressure.


What is blood pressure ?


Blood pressure is the lateral pressure exerted by blood on the walls of blood vessels as it flows through them.


Usually, the blood pressure we refer to is arterial pressure.


When the heart contracts, a large amount of pressure is generated in the arteries, and we refer to this pressure as systolic blood pressure (usually referred to as high pressure)


When the heart contracts to its limit and begins to relax, the pressure on the aorta also weakens,


The blood pressure at this time is called diastolic blood pressure (usually referred to as low pressure).


High pressure and low pressure are two reference values to determine whether your blood pressure is normal.


How to determine if your blood pressure is high?


The definition of hypertension is:


Firstly, we need to understand the concept of hypertension. Without taking anti-hypertensive drugs, it is usually defined as systolic blood pressure higher than or equal to 140mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure higher than or equal to 90mmHg.


The awareness rate of hypertension is 46.5%. Half of the people do not even know they have hypertension. They wouldn't even think of taking blood pressure tests, so this group of people should be taken seriously.


Is there a relationship between anger and hypertension?

It is generally believed that there is a certain relationship between emotional fluctuations and elevated blood pressure, and anger is an emotional fluctuation that may lead to elevated blood pressure. However, whether anger can lead to hypertension still needs to consider some specific situations. Whether anger can lead to high blood pressure depends on the degree and duration of emotions. If anger is temporary, mild, or accidental, then its impact on blood pressure is relatively limited. However, if anger is strong, persistent, or frequent, it may have an impact on blood pressure. Some studies have shown that long-term strong and persistent negative emotions may increase the risk of developing hypertension.


Secondly, whether anger can lead to hypertension depends on the individual's physical condition and lifestyle. If a person already has other risk factors for hypertension, such as obesity, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, etc., anger is more likely to lead to hypertension. In addition, if individuals live in high-pressure, high-intensity work or living environments for a long time, chronic stress reactions may occur, leading to hypertension.


Friends with these basic diseases, or those around them who suffer from these basic diseases, should pay attention. If these situations occur when angry, they must go to the emergency department in a timely manner:


  1. After getting angry, suddenly fall to the ground and become unconscious, even have seizures, or become numb and weak on one side of the limbs, unstable in holding objects, walking and shaking, unable to speak clearly, swallowing difficulties, nausea and vomiting, and consider stroke. It is necessary to seek medical attention in a timely manner.


  1. Chest tightness, unexplained chest pain accompanied by radiation pain in the left shoulder and back, accompanied by shortness of breath, sweating, nausea and vomiting, is considered angina and requires immediate medical attention. Even if the pain alleviates, it is important to seek medical attention.


  1. Severe chest pain, upper abdominal pain, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, lasting for more than 15 minutes, suspected of myocardial infarction.


Finally, it can be seen that whether anger can lead to hypertension is not a simple issue, just like many traditional Chinese medicine treatment methods, which need to be analyzed in conjunction with specific situations. To prevent high blood pressure, it is recommended to pay more attention to dietary adjustments, maintain a good lifestyle, and avoid the occurrence of chronic stress reactions. In addition, if you have a family history of hypertension, it is recommended to check your blood pressure regularly to find and treat it as soon as possible.
