High Blood Pressure Accompanied By A Headache?

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The optimal blood pressure is less than 130/80 mmHg. A person is said to have hypertension (high blood pressure) if the blood pressure increases to 130/80 mmHg or more when doing at least 3 times the examination in different situations, namely during exercise and after resting.
Need to clarify, how many times have you had this blood pressure check? Are the results always the same (higher than normal)?
There are several factors that can cause blood pressure to rise higher than normal, including age, genetics (heredity), obesity, physical activity, lazy exercise, smoking, too much sodium intake, too little potassium intake, excessive alcohol consumption, psychological stress, or also have certain diseases, such as kidney disease, diabetes, sleep apnea, and so on. In fact, there is no direct link between stomach ulcers (gastritis) and menstruation that is not smooth with hypertension. However, both of these conditions can be triggered by the same cause as hypertension, namely psychological stress.
To help stabilize your blood pressure, as well as treat stomach ulcers and make menstruation run smoother, you should take the following tips:
Manage your stress well, calm your mind by meditating a lot and relaxing. Eat regularly, don't procrastinate. Reduce consumption of foods that can lead to heartburn worsening, such as fried, acidic, spicy, and too much gas-containing foods. which contain salt (sodium), saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol Increase consumption of foods rich in potassium, for example bananas, broccoli, potatoes, sweet potatoes, low-fat yohurts, nuts, and so on. Get plenty of exercise, every 1 to 2 days, for example jogging, aerobic exercise, swimming, badminton, and so on. Don't smoke. Stay away from alcohol. Keep your ideal body weight. Don't forget, do regular control over your condition to the doctor so that it is given the right treatment. Your doctor may need to give you some medicine to neutralize your stomach acid. If necessary, the doctor may also refer you to a gynecologist and / or internal medicine specialist for further treatment related to your disease.
Hope it helps ..
