Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.We are here to help you.The blood pressure of the person is almost normal and I do n ot think that he has hypertension. Secondary Hypertension is one which is caused by a disease. Anxiety is not one of the diseases that can cause this.I recommend that you get the patient to a Doctor and get him checked for Blood Pressure 3 times a day in lying down and sitting position.
