Sir/madams and folks,
I have written mains with Physics optionals. My CSM 2016 went very well. I am expecting to get interview call for CSE
This was my 3rd attempt.
I am 28 year old preparing full time for last 3 years. When I started preparation i had 120/80. After 3 years of preparation and lethargic lifestyle now when I measured my BP during a check it showed 142/84, I got it checked twice but same result.
I have Hypertension issue in my family. My weight has also increased by 8-9 KGs.
CSE medical requirements says anything above Systolic Pressure 140 mm Hg or Pressure Diastolic 90mm Hg will be hospitalized and will undergo further checkup for hypertension.
My Systolic 142 mm Hg is scaring me.
Though it is possible to lower it down, but still i will be zone to be declared unfit.
Seniors and guys who are in service please guide how rigorous are UPSC medical check up in terms of Blood Pressure and hypertension cases
I am unable to even study for the next attempt as this could become a deal breaker even after nailing a good rank. Feeling depressed in my quest for services I screwed health and now eventually the reason for which I screwed is also slipping through my hands (services)
Please suggest. What could be done. Should I continue my prep or should I lower my blood pressure with through exercises then prepare or should i leave my preparation
