High & Low Blood Pressure board


Hi I am new to the forum.
I have recently set out on a fitness campaign (last 10 weeks), to try and get my blood pressure lower & lose a bit of weight and just generally get fitter, nothing strenuous, just 25 minutes a day, 5 times a week.
Everything has been brilliant, I have lost 16 lbs, and I now weigh 186 lbs and feel loads better.
Now onto my question, I take 125mg Tenoretic once a day, and have been taking this drug for 12 years, my blood pressure is usually O.K
This week I have had a bad cold, and so I laid off of the exercise until it clears up,
My blood pressure has been sky high 153/104........
Is this just a result of the bad cold???

Thanks in advance.

Andy
