Please help. My husband, who is the most gentle, loving, selfless, person that I have ever met is changing. He just turned 63 and is getting bad headaches and his behavior has changed. He now gets upset easily, can t sleep, has nightmares when he does get in an hour of sleep. Tomorrow, he will see his primary care physician because of the headaches. What can we expect, in terms of what tests, further care, etc? His only medical issues are high blood pressure, and one bout of pancreatitis a month ago. He has changed his diet and we have been walking at least 3 miles every night for about a month now. Please help.

My blood pressure is about 155/78 sometimes higher sometimes lower and I am only 24. I work out 4 days a week cardio and weight lift. I try to watch what I eat and usually eat somewhat healthy even though I drink alot of caffeine. Is this a serious health risk even though I work out as much as I do? Am I at risk of getting a heart attack later on in life if this continues? Somebody with medical experience please help!
