Paroxysmal Hypertension referenced in TMS Books

I have found and reported that almost all people with paroxysmal hypertension either have a history of unusually severe trauma that the insist is not affecting them or exhibit a repressive coping style. Understanding this psychological basis is not merely of academic interest, because it has finally opened the door to successful treatment. In some cases, a shift in awareness, by itself, halts recurrence of attacks. However, in most cases, successful treatment requires medication. Based on an understanding of the disorder's origin in repressed emotion, we now have pharmacologic approaches that control the disorder in most cases.

Paroxysmal Hypertension

Paroxysmal Hypertension consists of sudden random attacks of hypertension that are accompanied by headaches, difficulty breathing, weakness, light-headedness, or sweating. During these episodes a person's blood pressure can reach 200/100, and then return back to a normal level after or in between episodes. Timing between episodes varies, as some people have them every day, every couple of days, weeks, or months. These attacks come at unpredictable times, and when people would not connect them to emotional distress. Most physicians usually are search for a tumor in the patient to be the cause, however less than two percent of patients have turned out to have a tumor [1].
