At times feel full of anger that results in high blood pressure
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
Anger is a natural emotional response to feeling of being wronged and/ or not being able to protect oneself from being wronged. The anger response looses it's relevance when perception of being wronged may be exaggerated or misplaced. It may happen in depression, anxiety, mood disorders, substance use disorders, psychotic disorders or impulse control disorders etc. Anger management is aimed at identifying the triggers and the thought patterns behind this response. You can start by identifying what makes you angry and why and then start analysing your perceptions. You may see a psychotherapist/psychiatrist to guide you. Some anger issues are biological impulse control issues and one needs medicines to treat them. Treatment of primary psychiatric conditions like depression, anxiety and psychosis also mitigates anger.
