There are many things that can cause high blood pressure and/or heart rhythm problems, including chronic pain, allergies, chemicals, smoke, irritants, stimulants, diet, stress, etc., IMHO.
The more "triggers" of high blood pressure, in someone's life, the more likelihood of unhealthy levels of blood pressure.
How long have you been suffering from back pain?

⇒ Avg BP 2008-2017: 119/69 readings: 7,514
