Unhappy Left Arm Pain and High Blood Pressure

My blood pressure has been extremely high for about a week. My cardiologist did a mild change in my meds which should help bring it down (I lost 5 lbs in 4 days). My question is, has anyone ever experienced HBP and left arm pain at the same time? I had back surgery a few months ago and recently gained 15 lbs on top of my already overweight body. Could the extra weight cause the arm pain and pressure to rise? I'm very afraid of having a heart attack. BP reading today: 154/113 and 152/111.

Re: Left Arm Pain and High Blood Pressure

That is quite high, is your doctor aware that it is still at that leval?

I would call him and let him knw both about that and the left arm pain, just to be safe.

Provided he is ok with it, I would try heat, tylenol, and rest.
