Stress is one of the most common causes of short bursts of high blood pressure. Those with heart conditions are often told to be as careful as possible about stress and anxiety because the amount of pressure it places on the heart can become very dangerous. While high blood pressure bursts from anxiety aren't necessarily dangerous to those without a heart condition, they're still not ideal for long-term health.
But what you may not realize is that anxiety can cause low blood pressure too. In some cases, this drop in blood pressure is responsible for anxiety symptoms, and if you have panic attacks, it can increase your risk for future panic attacks.
Do you currently have a lump on your body that feels doughy and moves easily when you touch it? If your answer is “yes,” then you may already be familiar with lipomas. They are actually pretty common with approximately 1 in 100 people experiencing a lipoma at some point in their lives. Most of the time, you have one lipoma at a time, but about 20 percent of people will have several at once.
Can a lipoma become cancer? Typically, this does not occur, but it is important to monitor lipoma for growth and other changes. Is a lipoma painful? It can be. Most of the time, a lipoma won’t cause you pain, but it can hurt if it bumps up against nerves close by or if it has blood vessels running through it.
Is lipoma removal necessary? Many times, it’s not and there are some natural lipoma remedies that may help!
