View Full Version : Hypertension
01-16-2005, 01:53 PM
Starting this last week on wednesday I began feeling lightheaded for some reason straight through to friday. My dad said to go check my blood pressure out & its 150/70 which is bad on the first number & called hypertension. Also on wednesday I started taking flax again & thats the only new supplement I've gotten on. I've taken flax before last time I did my cut & had no side effects. My diet hasn't changed significantly either, except now I'm only drinking water. If anyone can share some insight on what could be causing this & if it could be flax i'd appreciate it.

None of the supplements you have listed would cause hypertension. I would look towards other possible factors, such as your diet, diuretic/stimulant use (coffee is an example), smoking, mental stress, dehydration, etc.

I don't smoke, drink coffee or any caffeine for that matter either & I drink roughly 1 gallon of water a day

well I'm 6'1" 195 so not overweight. Workout 6 days a week & play hockey on Sunday. To my knowledge my family doesn't have a history of hypertension. Doubt I'm stressed either cuz school just started up & I haven't really done anything yet. Thats why these last few days have been bothering me & to be honest the doctors down here at the local hospital where I'm going to college really suck, cuz they don't care about the students here at all. Last 2 times I was there I saw the doctors no more than 10 total minutes.
