Headache When Blood Pressure Is 130/80?
A good afternoon,. I am a 22 year old woman.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Normal blood pressure in both men and women has a systolic range or values above 100-120 and a diastole range or values below 60-80. In women, this condition is normal if it is slightly below the limit, say 90/60. So that in your case, 130/80 is quite high, especially if you are a woman whose blood pressure is low.
Even so, a person is declared hypertensive or has high blood pressure if the blood pressure has reached more than 140/80, for example 150/90, 170/100, and so on. This condition can cause symptoms in the form of headaches, neck pain, weakness, shortness of breath, chest pain and problems with vision.
Among the causes of increased blood pressure are:
Stress, anxiety, panic
Lack of sleep or lack of rest
Drug side effects
However, you should know that pain can also make a person's blood pressure rise. Then there is also the possibility that your blood pressure rises due to the headache, neck and shoulder you feel, and the appearance of the pain is caused by something else, it could be due to stress, fatigue, high cholesterol, or a primary headache condition.
Therefore, you should check with your doctor, so that the doctor can sort out which symptoms caused what, which occurred first, related or not and the like. At first, your doctor may just dig up your history and do a brief physical exam on you to prove your suspicions.
Meanwhile, our advice is to get plenty of rest, don't push yourself, consume more water, vegetables and fruit, don't delay eating, and you can take painkillers or apply painkillers to your neck and shoulders that are sold freely in pharmacies by reading the instructions listed. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
