I am a 35 year old male. I work out four to five days a week. I do have a history of anxiety and depression as well. Runs in the family! I recently started feeling light headed, dizzy, and very anxious. My eyesight felt strange and I was getting a very strong pull behind my eyes. I went to the ER and they checked my eyes out thoroughly. All came back fine, but my blood pressure was 175/110- They released me the same day and I felt the same symptoms when I woke up the next day. I went right to my internist and my pressure was 180-120. I was sort of freaked out. My head feels funny, light and sort of spacy. He gave me some meds and the pressure went down enough that I could leave. I am now on amlodopine and hydrochlor. I took them both last night and I feel AWFUL right now. Dizzy/lightheaded and out of it! Is this normal? The doctor also ordered a blood workup checking my kidneys and a renal ultrasound. I am a little worried, any suggestions would be great.View Thread
