Headaches and sensitivity to smell. Why was BP high? Why neck pain?

Hi Doc, so i am a 28 yr old lady. For most of my adult life i have experienced headaches quite frequently especially when i bend over forwards with my head down i feel an enourmous amount of pressed in my head and get instant headaches. I am very sensitive to some smells especially perfumes and cologne and they give me instant headaches. Everytime i get them i m able to get rid of it with otc pain killers. But recently for about a week now i have a dull like headache that i cant get rid off, i have a heightened sense of smell with slight neck pain , i checked my blood pressure and it was kinda high for me 140/80 compared to 110/80 normally. Doc can you help me?

Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at HCM !

chronic headaches, increasing on bending can be due to sinusitis.
Have you seen an ENT?
Do you get dull aches in the forehead, between the eyes, dark, aching eyes?

140/80 is not a worrisome BP and it rises with pain as a normal phenomenon.

Please consider ruling out a sinus problem since choked sinus opening can cause headaches.
Then there is a long list of causes for headaches.
Please tell us if you have any additional symptoms.

I hope you are fully satisfied with the guidance I gave.

I would be glad to answer any further queries.
Thank you and Good luck !
