Head hurts and feels hot, HBP 160/100

I went to the doctor three days ago and they prescribed me Lisinopril. Does it take a while for it to take effect because so far it is not helping. In fact this whole issue is very weird. Quick story, last year I was 266 pounds at 6'3" but I wasn't really fat mostly muscle. I only ate junk food and meat everyday. I then had high blood pressure, so I lost over 40 pounds and work out all of the time and watch what I eat. For some reason two weeks ago I was laying in bed and I had like spasms above my right ear. I then got a huge headache, and then my hbp skyrocketed. I am still going to the gym and am in great shape, I eat healthy but I feel like I am about to explode. Is it possible there is something other than stress and diet that is causing my hbp?

What is your b/p? It takes up to a month for some meds to work. Wonder why your Dr. didn't start you on a first line drug like a diuretic?

You were wise to have that ear spasm checked out. Did the Dr. do blood tests & urine tests? Hope so. He has to rule out causes of HBP like thyroid problems. In the meantime, you should avoid weight lifting since this activity causes a increase in b/p. Fam
