...that could semi explain blood pressure to me? My blood pressure used to run 122 (ish) over 80 (ish) almost all the time. In the last year the lowest it has been is 138 over 85. But lately it is running like 150 over 90 and up. Yesterday I went in to get steroid shots in the back of my head for Occipital Neuralgia, 4th or 5th time I have had this done, so I wasn't too worried about it and my blood pressure before was 155 over 103 and after the procedure it was 150 over 103. Am I headed for a heart attack or something? Should I be worried enough to make a doc appt? I am only 39, but a bit overweight, which I am sure accounts for some of it. Although, my weight hasn't changed in years...my blood pressure definitely has. Don't know if I should just chalk it up to pain or be worried. Thanks for any advice!!
