Thanks for your query.

High Blood pressure can lead to headache due to increased pressure in the head veins.Controlling the BP will solve the headache problem too.

His BP may have to be examined at rest on three different occasions and based on the readings the dosage of anti hypertensive medications has to be formulated.If he is already on medication then revision of the dosage is necessary now.

The indigestion your father has may not be related to the blood pressure.It could probably be due to wrong food timings or acid peptic disorders .Syrup MANNOL taken 10 ml before every meal will help to get rid of the problem.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Thanks for writing back.

After going through the detailed history you provided , I consider there to be sinusitis coupled with Eustachian tube oedema.Both the above pathologies can be seen in common cold and cause heaviness and pain in the head.

In this case giving him steam inhalations with eucalyptus or Vicks in the water is best remedy.If the steam is not helping much then application of Nasivion decongestant nasal drops about 3 to 4 drops in each nostril will surely reduce the symptoms in a day of two.

Do continue him on Aten as the blood pressure is high and do not stop until further advice by your treating doctor.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish him speedy recovery.
