I have had a cold/flu for the last 2 weeks that I caught from my grandson. He got over it in a few days but I am having trouble shaking it. Anyway, my BP has been been averaging 140/90 since I have been sick. Some reading have been >160/100. My normal BP is 124/82. I am on 25 mg of Toprol XL per day. Is it normal to see this much of a jump when you are not feeling well?
