Cheeks flushed, pressure behind eyes. Burning sensation in eyeballs. BP, sugar levels high. Possible reason?

My cheeks are flushed and I have pressure behind my eyes. Also there is a burning sensation in my eyeballs. I am currently monitoring my blood sugar levels and blood pressure , which are both high. This has all occured primarily within the past three weeks. I have an appointment with an internist 03/07. Are the flushed cheeks and pressure behind my eyes a result of the blood pressure?
