flushed face and headache?

I have had trouble with my blood pressure being high in the past, but lately have had trouble with my face flushing and feeling hot and instantly have a headache with it. Sometimes I also have ringing in my ears. Can this be a symptom of high blood pressure?

Re: flushed face and headache?

It can be, but it also could not be. Do you get flushed after lunch or a meal? It could be sodium making your blood pressure elevate.
I get the same too sometimes and a quick check of my blood pressure reassures me that I am fine plus I have changed my diet. Its amazing the sodium in fast food and frozen meals.
It could be the temperature change. Because lately here in ATL its been kind of colder than normal and my office can't seem to get the temp right. Its cold in the AM and burning up in the afternoon.

I would check you blood pressure when it happens and see what that gives you.

Good luck,

Re: flushed face and headache?

I have high blood pressure and am on Diovan and Inderal...My face gets so flushed sometimes...people comment...I don't get hot, sweaty, but my skin is hot to the touch. I may or may not have a headache with it. This will happen a few times a month and my guess is hot flashes...I am 51 years old.
