Suddenly i got a high blood pressure. How can it possible?

I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago and my blood pressure was good, then yesterday I went to the ER and my blood pressure was high, and they were some what concerned and told my to go to my regular doctor. So is it normal? Ive always had good blood pressure well thats what im told everytime I go to the doctor except yesterday it was considerably high. What could have caused this? Im going to the doctors tommorrow just wanted to see what you guys think.

Well, if you went to the ER obviously something was wrong with you and you were probably stressed or anxious. That could temporarily raise your blood pressure. When you go back the doc tomorrow, don't be surprised if it's normal again. If it's not, then your doc will help you figure it out.

Over the last 6 months, I have been experiencing increased incidents of tachycardia with extreme weakness and what seems like shivers (w/o the chill...that is the only way I know how to explain it. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure approximately 2 years ago. I was taking Atenelol which seemed to control the BP, but have Raynaud s and experienced a worsening of those symptoms last winter. My M.D. thought a change to a calcium-channel blocker would be better for the Raynaud s, and I am now trying the 2nd calcium-channel blocker, which is Nifedopine. My BP was continue to be high, so last week my Nifedopine dose was doubled. As an aside, I was recently diagnosed with Adrenal fatigue, but have not begun taking meds yet (the nurse is checking to be certain I can take the meds, as I have Factor Five Liden). After the Adrenal fatigue dx, I recalled a CT scan from years ago that showed something questionable with my adrenal glands (I can t recall now exactly what was said), but was sent for a PET scan, but there were no malignancies. I have also been having bouts of tachycardia, some nausea, and extreme sweats, accompanied by sudden onset of headache. In September, I went to a local ER during one of the episodes, where EKG and CAT scan were normal. Still, I wonder if all of this is not somehow related. I am trying to hold-out on making another PCP/MD visit until after the first of the year when my healthcare spending account has money in it again. I would love your thoughts on this matter
