What Effect Does Shouting With Anger Have On Blood Pressure?

Q: What effect if any, does too much shouting with anger have on blood pressure?

A: In any stressful situation, blood pressure goes up.  This does not mean it has to go above normal but it goes up.  This is Mother Nature’s way of getting your body ready to fight or flee.  Blood pressure goes back down once the stressful situation has passed.  Constant stress is not a clear risk factor for high blood pressure but often is related to other behaviors such as excessive drinking or over eating which are risk factors.
