Headaches, blurred Vision on the left side and High Blood Pressure

HI, I am a 34 year old female who has been having really bad headaches on the left side of my head off and on for 3 weeks now, It is now starting to scare me because after going to the ob/gyne dr, they found out that I have high blood pressure of which I never had... the have checked it 3 times at the visit.. 160/92, 158/94, 158/92... these are the reading, I was gave medication for the blood pressure and it is still in the 150's.... and the headaches are still there... should I be worried

Re: Headaches, blurred Vision on the left side and High Blood Pressure

Your blood pressure is moderately high, not really in the stroke range; Having said that, you may have other factors going on. Anxiety over your BP reading can be contributing. Did they check it over a period of time, or just at that one visit? What were you there for? If you were anxious about being at the Drs, that will shove up your BP. There are many causes of chronic headaches, and you really need to get it checked out. A CT scan or MRI will show whether you have anything to worry about. Sera.
