I am a 26 year old male, who weighs 173 lbs. I am having severe headaches for a few days now. I am currently taking Percocet for this headache. I was told that I have hypertension. My blood pressure is 168/98 mmHg, and pulse is 120 and steady. Please help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Your headaches are probably caused due to your high blood pressure. A headache can also increase the BP, but not this much.
As you are so young, the cause of hypertension should be found out first. So, I suggest you undergo tests like kidney function test, renal artery doppler, serum cortisol, 24-hour urine metanephrines, lipid profile, and sugar level.
Do you do any drugs like ecstasy, cocaine, etc.? As it can also cause hypertension.
Till you get all the tests done, I suggest you try doing the following.
Hope this helps you and get back if you have any doubts.
