Sudden Hypertension

  1. Over the summer, my BP was running about 115/70. I was running 3 miles a day, and enjoying my summer off from nursing school. I just checked it today and I'm at 151/81. I'm only concerned because I always have a headache now, and during sex, the headache builds until orgasm where it feels like a migraine. How fun is that? Im not running everyday like i was, and the stress of nursing school this semester is almost unbearable. I'm an uninsured student, but we have a campus clinic I could go to. Should I go? Or do you think it's stress induced and will resolve on its own. Thanks.

    There is no way we can make that judgment for you. You will need to be examined by your PCP. If you are concerned about your BP, go to your doctor and get checked out.

    As llg has already said you really need to go and discuss this with your doctor. We are unable to give any medical advice here
