Pressure build up. How many times do you "release" the pressure per day? Try doubling it.

they took my blood pressure a couple weeks ago when i was at the doctor for my carpal tunnel problems, and everything was normal then, so i don't think it is that.

but who knows.

I don't know why you being conscious of it would in anyway make it a health issue. Not, that you thought it was. I am sure it is in your head. Now, trying to become unconscious of it, I don't know what to tell you. Maybe breathing exercises when you are going to bed. I know this would seem to make you concentrate on it even more, but it might relax you as well. You might also be able to do Progressive Muscle Relaxation (I think that is what it is called) while you are trying to sleep.

Speaking of being stoned with this, I drank 2 monsters the day I smoked a shitload of weed. That was bad, I was about to take myself to the hospital because I was terrified...

P.S. Blood pressure can also rise from fluid retention, and from pressure in the abdomen. That's why blood pressure drugs often are diuretics.

Just started to wonder if the fluid retention women have around their periods ever serves to raise their blood pressure.

Blood pressure can go up or down very quickly and by quite a lot. Sometimes it can be from very subterranean stressors you didn't even know were bothering you much, let alone hitting you really hard. Caffeine can definitely do it too. I've gone to diners that have blood pressure machines and measured myself before and after eating and guzzling two or three cups of coffee, and damn, it has spiked my blood pressure up like 30 points.

hm good to know, i guess i didn't realize blood pressure can change that quickly. i never really thought about it.
i don't drink caffeine so i don't think that is the cause either.

yeah. it went on for weeks. i would forget about it and it would come back, etc. but then i guess i forgot about it totally, because this is the first thing to remind me of it happening. i'm also 100% not the kind of dude that takes it easy or forgets things, so i think you should be hopeful.

I'm going to guess anxiety.

Cure = Exercise no sugar no caffiene

Why does the cure always seem so nasty? Exercise is fun but cutting the others out is hard.

Consciousness of heartbeat is in NOT necessarily causally related to increases in blood pressure. To those who notice consciousness of their heartbeat when stoned, that has little to do with blood pressure.

Heart rate and blood pressure are not the same thing geniuses.

Marijuana, especially, causes a mild increase in blood pressure, but chronic usage tends to produce orthostatic HYPOtension, ie, the feeling of fainting when standing up. This is irrespective of the heart rate increases that tend to occur immediately following ingestion.
