Pain and Increase in Blood Pressure

Wondering if a few hours of fibromyalgia pain can cause an unusually high reading of blood pressure.

Re: Pain and Increase in Blood Pressure

it could. were you stressed about the pain at the time? i would follow up and get a bp meter and monitor your pressure for 2 weeks, morning, afternoon and evening. if you get consistantly high readings get back to your doctor with your numbers. you may have developed high blood pressure, not something to ignore. treatable.
if you have insurance your doc can script a bp monitor for you and insurance will pay for it.

Re: Pain and Increase in Blood Pressure

Pain and being sick have a big affect on my blood pressure. If I go into the doctor feeling really bad it is a guarantee that my blood pressure will be through the roof. Once things settle down it will go down. However since having fibro and being in almost constant pain, blood pressure has stayed up- makes sense. So I am now on blood pressure meds to keep it somewhat under control regardless of pain.
