Hi and thanks for this query.Headaches
are well documented in patients with high blood pressure
. However, not all patients with high blood pressure develop headaches. My advice to you is that you get you blood pressure controlled in a well rested condition a few ore times. If it stays consistently higher than 140/90, then this should be explored as the immediate cause of these headaches. A single blood pressure value is not diagnostic of high blood pressure. It is difficult to tell whether the pain of headache caused the blood pressure to increase or the increased blood pressure caused the headache. Monitoring will resolve this dilemma.
Whatever the results of this close monitoring, please meet and share with your doctor to continue the care.
I hope u find this helpful and it provides guidance on how to approach this problem. If you have more question, please feel free to ask them.
I wish you good health.
Dr. Ditah, MD.
