High & Low Blood Pressure board

I had an increase in my blood pressure yesterday. I am on my menstrual period,now i dont know if that has anything to do with it,but i went to the bathroom,and my blood pressure rose.I could notice something was going on cause i looked in the mirror and my eyes were greatly dilated.And i was shaking and didnt feel good.I am on two blood pressure medications. Atenolol
and Hydrochlorothiazide. After a while,my blood pressure did gradually go back down to a more reasonable level. But it is a scary feeling when i think gee,am i going to have a stroke or something? Luckily it doesnt happen very often but sometimes out of the blue it will.
