BP is a problem: Drugs such as Ibuprofen taken chronically or at high dose, can cause blood pressure elevation. If you stop, and BP remains stubbornly elevated, get this checked out, as surges of blood pressure can be very risky in the long run and should be controlled. Your concussion has little if anything to do with your pressure at this point.
