Hi ,
it is good that all your screening tests are normal . what we shall need also is your BMI and stress test .
Please note that even in normal individual , BP fluctuations are possible .
In your case anxiety and other reasons like stress , or any other positive risk factors like family history , addictions can also play important role in elevating blood pressure .
Consider following measures to have good controll of BP
1 Home monitoring of BP
2 stress releiving measures like yoga / meditation
3 regular exercise
4 maintain ideal weight
5 no addictions

Headches can be due to high BP , eye or detal problems .

Dear Mr.

From Your questions and the way it goes i infer u are in midst of lots of Stress.your lab reports clearly suggests normal exept some small hike in your creatinine level.I advise you to approach some good yoga masters/call me for learning to manage ur stress as such there is no problem called stress elumination-so better u should know how to manage your Stress.the head ache and shortness of the breath is strongly related to that ie tension headache.also u need to be in a alkaline diet to reduce your acidic nature.

In a Nut shell -all cooling pranayams (breathing exercises )and alkalising ur diet is sure shot remedy for ur complaints.also try Hot foot bath (10 mins ) to relieve from ur head ache instantly.

check ur Hemoglobin level and let me know....

take care....
