Indigestion, heartburn, jaw ache. Taking Lisinopril for BP. High BP due to indigestion?

I take a 20 mg tablet of lisinopril daily for blood pressure and have done that approximately 10 years. I am a 49 year old woman. The last couple of weeks I have had terrible indigestion and heartburn and my jaws ache. I just took my blood pressure three separate times this morning (trying hard to relax) and it is averaging 165/135. It had been in the 120/80 range. Could having indigestion cause this?

hello teresa,

i feel you need to contact your family physician immediatly as your blood pressure is very high and indigestion will not cause this high pressures.indigestion can be treated by taking some PPIs(rbeprazole) and prokinetics (domperidone).but please go to your family physician and he will prescribe some anxiolytics.

have a good day,bye.
