What causes headache and elevated blood pressure?

I have always had low blood pressure. It was 130 over 90 today and I now have a headache this evening. There has been a possiblility of me having a pheochromosytoma, but the diagnosis is not definitive. I am concerned about my blood pressure.

Hello,

If you feel not well with these values of your blood pressure, you may need to start treatment for high blood pressure.

This is not a value to worry about and gives no information for a possible pheocromacitoma.

I suggest you monitor your blood pressure for sometimes a day for some days and to visit a doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Anila Skenderi, General & Family Physician
