What can cause your blood pressure to shoot up all of a sudden?
Hi would value some advice ....I've had problems with my BP for years now and today all of a sudden it shot up to 164/144 ....after about 10 mins it went down to 145/96 it is now back down to 130 /85. I was sat playing scrabble on the computer at the time so wasn't doing anything stressful and wasn't anxious or anything. I now have a whopper of a headache ...what could cause this it isn't the first time this has happened.
I'm on metropolol 50mg twice a day, Ramapril 5mg twice a day, amlodipine 5mg a day, I also take isotard 30mg for angina. Is it worth telling my GP about these sudden rises during the day?
