Computer use and hypertension

Q: I’ve noticed that my BP increases after I spend time on the computer. What is the relationship between computer use and hypertension?

A: Without having more information about you, I am unable to answer this question. There are too many factors involved. If an activity elevates your pressure, there is likely an element of stress or frustration involved. Also, seating in front of a computer for long periods of time can be equated to being a “couch potato” in front of the television. Lack of exercise is a big factor in getting high blood pressure.
