Which is worst worrying or having high blood pressure?

Higher blood pressure is linked to a lower tendency to worry - Medical News Today

Blood pressure modulates a person's tendency to worry and can be associated with a "tranquilising" effect when elevated. This is indicated in a new study, led by Spanish researchers, that reflects how we can implicitly learn to increase our blood pressure as a way of alleviating tension and emotional unease.

"To be worried is to be intelligent, although passively. Only fools are carefree." Without entering into an evaluation of this quote by the German poet and dramatist, Goethe (1749-1832), a recent study points to a new consequence of blood pressure.

The study, led by researchers from the University of Jaén and the University of Granada, points out that our predisposition to worry is linked with blood pressure and baroreceptor reflex sensitivity, fundamental in the stabilisation of blood pressure and activated by receptors located in the aortic and carotid arteries.

Previous studies already indicated that when blood pressure increases or is high, pain perception, musculoskeletal somatic complaints and response intensity to negative emotional stimuli decrease.

"Two physiological mechanisms could explain blood pressure's inhibitory effect on pain and negative emotions: endogenous opiates and baroreceptor reflex stimulation," Gustavo A. Reyes del Paso, main author of the new research and scientist at the Andalusian institute, explained to SINC.
